Turning our attention to the gearshift knob, that’s the ZF 8HP automatic transmission we know from BMW. Paddles come standard, mounted onto the steering wheel instead of the steering column, and to make life onboard easier, Toyota has incorporated two cup holders into the center armrest.
An electronic parking brake and engine stop/start button are also included, and curious enough, the passenger airbag on/off button is located right next to the dome lights. The engine and turbo diagrams reveal the C version of the B58 inline-six, displacing 3.0 liters in the 40i. Lower down the spectrum, the Supra will be offered with the B46 (in the 30i) and B48 (in the 20i).
Coming courtesy of JT from Supra MkV, the diagrams also include a head-up display. Just like the peeps at BMW, Toyota has arranged to manufacture the Supra in Graz, Austria with the help of Magna Steyr. Expected to arrive sometime in 2019 (but no later than 2020), the Supra has been confirmed to add a six-speed manual transmission option.
Reservations of the Supra are already open in Europe. The program is called Supra 900 Club, and as the name implies, the customers will receive “a range of special benefits, including exclusive content, personalized merchandise, and a host of money-can’t-buy rewards and experiences.”
On that note, which of the two makes more sense to you: the Z4 or the Supra?
