Agreed, if the Heritage edition was actually released and it came with a manual I'd strongly consider it.

Interview with Art from EAG on the Supra manual conversion at SEMA. We also get to see the car all buttoned up. I have to say they did a really good job. Looks factory. Art goes into some more details which weren't really covered in his build videos. Apparently, the factory programming/software already had what they needed to accommodate the manual. They just had to tweak things a bit.

A section of the door vent was made functional.

When I went with my mom to help her get a corolla one dealer must of had like 10 of them inside the show room. All had a $14,500 market price adjustment sticker on them.

It's alright, doesn't do anything for me. Front styling is not my favorite, but I kinda like the rest of it, inside it's basically a BMW (which I guess is good) and no manual would be a deal breaker. Just seemed like a Toyota styled BMW to me and I'm not a fan of anything BMW is doing right now in regards to performance sporty cars so....

Doing a quick search around here in SoCal seeing some of them being marked up to around 80K. Have they heard of the C8 and Cayman S? Or even a used Cayman GT4?

Supra is a $40-45k car in my mind. I can purchase a much more capable C7 in the low $40k range today. And the C7 has just as much aftermarket support, if not more. The 6.2L LT1 engine can easily handle a supercharger and get you over 600HP too if that's your thing.

You can even find a slightly used 718 Cayman/Boxster in the low $40k range and actually be able to own a Porsche. I'm just not finding a compelling reason why you would spend $50k or more for a Supra. I'd rather spend that kind of money to get the Z4 instead and at least have a drop top.

That was sarcasm as Toyota assured Toyota reliability for the BMW Supra.
