Only interested if it comes in manual?

I checked the difference in weight between manual and 8ZF on few BMW models and on average it appears manual is lighter around ~20kg (~45lbs), but thats just going over some interent specs, can be different on the Supra.

God damn it don't be cagey with us just spit it out!!
As much as I would love to, I gotta respect Toyota and their business....especially during these hard times for automakers. I will say this....my “source” has recently joined SupraMKV :thumbsup:.

No worries! Then your “source” will at least hear our concerns directly as a fly on the wall and maybe that will keep getting back to Toyota ; )

I know we’ll find out before long, lol. I’m happy that you sound excited because that suggests maybe there are some good things in store : )

Manual and a GRMN version. I mean, you've pretty much already spilled the beans... ;)

At this point I would just like to see how the Supra separates itself from the upcoming M2 with the GRMN and 6mt models. Especially if the GRMN or 6mt models have limited production, there is little reason for a perspective buyer to pay a premium and markup over an M2. Although I am not a perspective 6mt buyer, I am a perspective GRMN buyer and there is no way I would pay a premium over an M2 for a car that will perform within a margin or error.

Imagine a beefy manual, beefy diff, beefy axles, beefy brakes (6 pots), and maybe a nice active aero spoiler. That would surely make the Supra stand out from it’s closest competition. Ehh...we all day dream :)

How will that make the Supra stand apart from the competition with those changes when the M2 will likely have the same upgrades?
