Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

Only interested if it comes in manual?

your point stands none the less, but I also love modern Tremec transmissions (TR6060/6070) :)

I also agree in regards to them being a pretty brawny trans, but they have gotten much better than the T56 era lol. I want to swap a 6060 into my A70 eventually.

Well I knew it was over when in that interview between Tada and Inada Daijiro took place. Daijiro is the life long king of the tuning scene as we all know, and he was telling Tada that a manual isn't needed for the A90, that it's primitive. The only reason you would want it is so that your hand has something to do. lol
Toyota needs to see this

Tremec 6060 shifts wayyyyy better than a V160. I love all manuals but there are good and bad in all walks of life.

I assume you mean the Getrag V160?? If so, there are a number of manual transmissions (factory oem, not modified) that can handle the same if not more power than a V160.
I actually meant the J160/AZ6 transmission that comes in the 86 and previously in the RX-8, MX-5 and IS/Altezza. It's a great transmission but it turns into glass at anything close to 350TQ. The ZF is definitely superior, but my point was a manual transmission loses it's firmness and drivability the more power you make it handle.

I agree with everything else though.

Automatic people arguing why they like auto and why manual lovers should just be happy with an automatic. Is like vegans telling me why I should only eat veggies because its proven to be better for me.

Just cause you guys love it, doesn't mean we should.

Let us be.
Sometimes for me it sounds like you manual freaks are the vegetarian. Just cause you guys love the manual, doesn’t mean I should.

Let me be.

I assume he meant the Zx6 transmission (TL70), which is based on the Toyota J160/Aisin AZ6, but just called it the J160.

Ah, sorry I thought only in regards to Supra’s.

Sure, the new auto’s may be a different beast...again, im not dismissing the idea of ever owning an auto trans car. Personally, having driven and owned both manual and auto cars for various reasons and applications, I enjoy a manual drivetrain car way more. These new auto’s and dct’s are pretty sweet though.

Alot of aftermarket tuner shops are offering the Magnum's as a great option for high HP builds. Granna's racing for a while has been the go to for 2JZ swaps with T56 Magnum's. I was originally looking at the T56's, then wanted to go the CD009 route...but due to the limited space under the hood of the Z32 with a tall 2JZ and the smaller Z32 tunnel clearance, a smaller bellhousing and narrower trans-body option is ideal without beating in panels. That's why I am looking for Getrag 420g's or ZF S6-xx's....both came in BMW's and both can handle boat loads of power. Have you considered these two for your swap?

I used to own a 997 gt3 with manual and switched to a 991.2 gt3 RS with the PDK. Of course that’s the only transmission available. At first I thought I might regret but not at all, never looked back. Don’t get me wrong, I would drive manual again but I see both have advantages and disadvantages, and of course, comes down to preference.

If anyone driven Porsche’s know they are the best in the business when it comes to PDK/DCT type transmission.

One of the best autos I’ve driven I would say is the Alfa Romeo ZF. Hopefully the auto in the Supra is similar.

Great video! Thanks for sharing. God I love Porsche's....they look and drive like real race cars right off the showroom floor.
I like the video too and yes, I really do understand why you guys want to have a manual option. But I was ROFLOL when he compared a faster shifting automatic with instant coffee ;D

The reason why I’m not that much in love with Porsche is, that in Germany so many people drive one and you can find them on nearby every corner. Another aspect is, that Porsche is part of the Volkswagen Company and I really really don’t like them. I hate them for bringing us the “Abgasskandal” and every issue that came with it.
