2024 Toyota Supra – After selling only two Z4s in two years, BMW decided to cancel the Z4 in Australia last summer. This is a clear indicator of real demand, regardless of what people may say online. Rumors of a manual Toyota Supra have resurfaced, and they claim that Toyota has approved a manual option. According to rumors, the manual transmission would only be available for the four-cylinder Supra, which was released later than the six-cylinder version. This was understandable since BMW offered only the manual transmission in the Z4 range (which is the GR Supra’s platform sibling) with the sDrive20i.

The four-cylinder 194-horsepower motor produced 320 Nm torque and a 0-62mph (0-100 km/h) time of 6.8 seconds. This was two-tenths faster than the automatic version. Although the latter had a better fuel economy, most people don’t buy that model. It is not hard to see why it didn’t catch on.
2024 Toyota Supra Released
Sources within Toyota’s U.S. dealer networks claim that the manual version is “confirmed” and could debut this year. These sources reached out to The Drive for this information. They also claimed that Toyota executives have decided to offer the manual version of the six-cylinder Supra. This version could have a different engine but it is not confirmed. Others have suggested that Tetsuya Taka, chief engineer of the Supra engine, insisted on the manual. However, this is not confirmed at the moment. Toyota representatives did not comment on the Supra A90 manual transmission rumors. This is exactly what other companies would do in such a situation. It is not unusual for rumors to be left unconfirmed.
Another company insider claimed that a group of Toyota dealers met in Las Vegas in late 2021 to display a Supra prototype with a manual transmission. This is also not confirmed, however, companies make prototypes all of the time. However, not all are made. What is our take on this rumor? Don’t hold your breath. It will happen if it is possible. If it doesn’t, then nothing has changed Rumors claim that the Toyota Supra might get a manual transmission option in the U.S.
