Should we wait for the Manual Transmission Supra? Update: Tada-san says no to MT?

Haha, I was kidding anyways. It's just tiring trying to keep up with Tada's comments behind closed doors vs those in the public sphere.

But I'm hardly ever around him, so maybe he's actually open to changing his mind now vs just playing the PR game.

At this point, I'll wait for actions.

If the Supra offered a manual, it may be a way to steal some sales (back) from the C8.
no kidding, Toyota would be lucky to even have Supra sales that surpass the number of folks that bought manual C7s...and where are those folks supposed to go when their lease ends, 4 cylinder MT Cayman?

It's a bad PR game if that's all it is. At this point I'm pretty tempted to order a Supra, but am still holding out for the manual he's been dangling in front of us for a year. I understand the Japanese culture and the position he's in, but it makes it difficult.

Same... I’m trying to hold out for the next revision, more power, or manual, more options, etc. just waiting at this point but I’m close to pulling the trigger too. Obviously there are some options I’d prefer if I could get but might not.

Either way, the next version should be a ways out if traditional schedule holds true. That's not to say Toyota's schedule per se, but I would be surprised to see anything other than minor changes before 2022MY.

Do you know what the revised Supra looks like?
