    The 5th Generation Supra

    For enthusiasts out there who have a PS4 and a copy of Gran Turismo Sport, you’ll be able to drive the concept in April. For everyone else, we’ll have to wait until 2019 to see the road-going version of the Supra.

    I gotta be honest @webby. I can’t wait to see this probably ridiculously over priced Supra.

    yeah, but there were comments with toyota engineers saying no manuals would be made, and the price tag would be a shock to most (high). So, I'm guessing it's going to be a pretty penny.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's priced similar to the new nsx, they will be competitors after all...

    Toyota presented the Supra Racing Concept at the Geneva Motor Show as a teaser to the production model. While attending the event, Japanese publication Info Seek, as cited by SupraMKV, discussed the car with Toyota’s chief engineer Tetsuya Tada and were told about Toyota’s racing ambitions and the brand’s thoughts of offering a manual gearbox.

    Asked directly if a manual transmission is on the cards, Tada replied that “at the moment, it is not; it is just a dual-clutch transmission”.

    He then explained that the next Supra may have too much power to make a manual gearbox viable. He also said that once customers get a taste of the dual-clutch transmission being developed, they’ll no longer yearn for a stick-shift.

    pretty sure their shifter will be top notch, shift faster then any of us can, and never miss a gear. Plus a high horsepower car with a manual shifter sounds like a warranty disaster for Toyota. With that said I'm pretty sure their engineers can come up with some kind of manual box.

    Seriously though, I'm excited about this car!!!

    A reliable source on SupraMKV forums proclaims that the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six cylinder engine will produce 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque with an alleged starting price of roughly $63,500 in the United States.

    10-20k + markups wouldn't surprise me in the least.

    The first 1,500 Supras will feature an individually numbered carbon-fiber badge on the passenger-side dashboard complete with a graphic of Toyota Motor Corporation President and Master Driver Akio Toyoda’s signature.

    toyota dealership response....
