    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 :)

    misleading. More like Road version displayed during fall. Dont get your hopes up. A lot of fans have been waiting and surely enough will be disappointed

    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.

    Did he (or some other member) also say something along the lines of production version displayed at the New York Auto Show (they said they had credible sources)?

    Logically, automakers would present the production vehicle to auto shows months in advance prior to production. If production were to be realistically initiated at the fall season, production vehicle should have been shown by now.
    By taking a look a the auto show calendar, the next major auto will be the Paris Auto show. That isnt until October 2018

    I am not trying to be a debbie downer or anything, but I had my fair share of being Blue Balled by toyota.

    Dont get your hopes up.
