Toyota Supra Manual Gearbox and GRMN Version Reported

Toyota Supra GR 3000GT Concept

Mag X Japan have reported that there are rumors that the Toyota Supra will come with a manual gearbox and a limited run GRMN version for the new Supra.

Who knows if the GRMN supra will look anything like the GR 3000GT Supra pictured above, but hopefully it has aggressive styling and has ties back to the original TRD 3000GT Supra.

According to Mag X, Toyota noticed the number of people asking for a manual gearbox and that the desire was apparently enough to sway members of the development team to consider introducing a three-pedal setup to the Supra.

Unfortunately there is no official word from Toyota about the manual option or any plans for which year model Toyota Supra would receive it, I would expect it not until at least 2022 if Toyota did decide to release it.

The latest rumors regarding the GRMN Supra are that it may gain the twin-turbo inline six from the upcoming BMW G80 M3 and M4. This could mean an power output of around 510hp (380kw) if Toyota can get their hands on the new S58 engine from BMW.
