Is That a Supra? With a Manual?

It's been officially confirmed that the 2023 Supra will likely have a manual gearbox as an option

Toyota is throwing us around with all sorts of different news this week. First being the confirmation of the Tundra Capstone, ignore the fact that it was leaked on Reddit a few months ago and we all figured it out, and the manual transmission MK5 Supra rumored to be an option in 2023. Turns out the news is true about the Supra and we should expect to see a manual gearbox as an option for the 2023 model year. I should be able to get more details on this later but this is really good news for Supra fans that were a little disappointed with the MK5 so far. This might not

The current 2.0 and 3.0 Supra comes with an 8-speed automatic with paddle shifters. The manual transmission was originally thought to be only available on the 2.0, but as James Gilboy of “The Drive” mentioned yesterday, “someone at Toyota (rightly) insisted it be available on the six-cylinder car”, so we won’t have a Bronco situation here. All sorts of other speculations were then being made about the car now that it will be getting a manual transmission, like whether or not the Supra GRMN will match the M3’s horsepower using the same S58 straight-six engine when it comes around.

Not much else is known so far, but once a statement is released by Toyota officially we’ll know for sure what we have to look forward to. The BMW Supra is headed for a bright future, just hope it doesn’t get axed before it’s prime. At this point, we’re so close to the 2030 EV threshold that it might stick around until it’s forced to be hybrid or fully electric. I know, I know, save your comments but it’s inevitable. We all saw the future Toyota lineup so there’s lots to miss, but also a lot to look forward to.

  • at least you'll get that sportscar feeling when you downshift manually

  • I really like the looks of the Supra and I don’t care that it’s a reskinned BMW Z4, so I’m really excited that a manual will be available. Maybe a targa version too? That would be an awesome combo!
