Dec 23, Washington Post:
Toyota said yesterday that it was on track to become the world's largest automaker next year, dethroning General Motors and underlining how far auto manufacturing has fallen from its once-pivotal place in America's economy and politics.

The Japanese automaker's potential dominance will sharpen the spotlight on the industry's problems when Congress reconvenes in January. Members from Michigan, led by Rep. John D. Dingell, have pledged to use Democratic control of Congress to help U.S. automakers.

"If Toyota's worldwide production surpasses General Motors', it will simply provide further evidence of the need for the U.S. government to pursue policies that maintain and strengthen the U.S. industrial base," Dingell said yesterday.

Toyota will soon de-throne GM, could a Chinese company be far-off from doing the same thing in ten years? Moreover, what does this mean to the American car industry?:D :D

Food for thought.....

Which one is produced by Chinese and which one is produced by Toyota?
The Chinese one is the cheap looking one. The Toyota is the one with a well co-ordinated interior that looks like it won't fall off when you touch it. :D Lol. Toyota should look out though- the Chinese are catching up.
