There have been some rumours out for a while, but now it is certain, you will soon be able to control the gears of your Toyota Supra yourself! Adding a manual transmission to choose from in this world full of automatic cars is amazing news. Toyota posted a teasing photo of three pedals on Twitter with the caption “Did you think we were done?” and hashtags #Supra #Manual. You don’t need to a genius solve this puzzle, Toyota is going to make an manual supra!
Toyota can relatively easily equip the Supra with a manual gearbox because the powertrain comes from BMW. BMW has the 3 and 4 series whose 3 litre engine comes in a manual. It would make sense that the 3 liter supra is going to get the manual gearbox. This model of the supra has 340 HP and 500 NM. The 2 liter supra with 258 HP en 400 NM is a bit less likely to get the manual but also shouldn’t be to hard to make a manual transmission for the 2 liter model too.
So far we only know that there is going to be a manual supra in the near future. The specs are only my speculations and Toyota has not confirmed anything about it yet. But with the recent announcement of a GR Corolla which is amazing, I can expect that Toyota is trying their best to make this manual supra one of the most fun cars to drive on the current market.Published in
