Oh, definitely agree with you there. I think they'd be better off not having revived it until they have had the resources and money to do so. The FT-1 concept looked a lot better than what we ended up with. It's just a pathetic car, the new Supra. And like you said, they should have at least made it in manual. The BMW roots are so deep with the car, especially since it's made in Austria.
I'm just happy that they at least revived the Supra name. Would I buy the new Supra personally? No, because I hate new cars. The Mk IV though, that's a different story
