In a Friday interview with Autoblog, Supra chief engineer Tetsuya Tada revealed that Toyota is planning several updates for the Supra in the near future.

According to EAG, converting a Toyota Supra from an automatic to a manual will cost about $12,000 for parts and labor.

In addition to performing a transmissions swap, the tuner says it will work alongside Canadian company ProTuning Freaks to work on a power upgrade package for the sports vehicle that promises to increase power from the standard 335 hp to 420-430 hp at the wheels.

Toyota has no plans of selling the all-new 2020 Supra with anything other than an eight-speed transmission but fortunately, tuning shop European Auto Group has announced it will offer six-speed manual conversions for the sports vehicle. For all intents and purposes, the 86 seems like a better deal from a financial standpoint. Performance upgrades will also include carbon-ceramic brakes, which should fool the customer into thinking this vehicle can be tracked. The $49,990 sticker price of the entry-level model in the United States of America is a few dollars more than the Chevrolet Camaro in 2SS flavor, coupe, and with the 1LE Track Performance Package, and don't you dare ask about the equivalent variant of the Ford Mustang.
