I can say only "ugly"

but consept cars usually are, and when those come on market, they look "barely decent"

I wish they would at least once* make a car that looks like the wild concept it was based on. I'm pretty sure that if the new Supra is ever produced, it'll be toned down just like mad_finn said, made just another... well, sort of normal car, not like the concept model or the preliminary drawings, which are even better. We seriously need more futuristic-looking new cars. It's the 21st century after all and the 80s are well gone.

(* well, once again if you count the new Honda Civic ;)

American new muscle usually looks pretty damn close to the concepts of a few years ago.

Hope it comes with a manual. Even Hyundai has the good sense to put one in their sports car.

Hybrid with a manual? Honda offered it in the original Insight, but not in the modern Insight (CVT only). Toyota hasn't offered one in their Prius...maybe not in this Supra either.
