    Another interview via Google Translate (not the best). It was so poorly translated, but I tried to clean it up a bit. Again, if someone here reads Japanese or Chinese maybe you can please give us a better translations. Thanks :)

    Makes me think the auto was also considered due to ability to handle bulk torque

    I also hope that it does feel like a sequential. Sequential transmissions are fantastic.

    Also, it's Japanese. Not Chinese :)

    If the Supra is headed to Le Mans, a DCT is the most reasonable choice

    I told you so about the DCT...
    It couldn't have been an old auto box since its a joint platform with BMW and transmissions will be among the shared parts.
    In the leaked documents its been referred to as AUTO , thats why it was misinterpreted by many.
    It will be BMW's DCT found in the new Z4.

    You know what? This will decimate all, after, you put about fifteen grand in it or more. If we have to, overnight parts from Japan.
