Mark of Savagegeese mentioned he thinks a manual is a possibility in the future for these cars.If people can live with M3s and M4s, I can live with the car as is though my biggest qualm about it is that it doesn't offer three pedals.I ran into Mark's videos by accident. I have to say he is one of the best reviewers of cars out there. I respect his opinion more than many so called experts on the Internet. And to tell you how much of a real car guy he is, he backs up his rhetoric with his wallet/actions. While the Toyota 86 wasn't the complete package, he bought one to show his support to Toyota for what they were trying to do. How many of you have voted with your wallets? To expect Toyota to dump tons of money into developing a sports car from scratch with the undeniable shrinking market for sports cars is foolish.
Mark also said this platform is likely going to be even better than the M3/4 platforms. His reasoning is the M versions were all built up from a chasis which was never designed as a sports car first. This Supra and the Z4 have been fully developed as a sports car platform first and foremost.
