A new version of the Toyota GR Supra has made its debut: now also with manual transmission.

Sales of manual versions will start in Europe this summer, and cars will reach dealers in the U.S. and Japan in the fall.

The Japanese company has been producing sports car Supra since 1978, though Toyota stopped production of the fourth generation of the model in 2002.

As a result, the manufacturer still decided to revive the car: its fifth generation was presented at the beginning of 2019 in Detroit.

According to the Carsalesbase website, sales of the model started in the States in the summer of the same year.

Things for the model in this market are generally going well: during the «covid» 2020 dealers sold 5,887 units, and last year the result grew by 16% to 6,830 copies.

We shall remind, the basis of a sports car of the Japanese brand is the German roadster BMW Z4 (G29).

Production of these two models is factory Magna Steyr in Graz (Austria).
