Akio Toyoda at Toyota Earnings

Toyota had its 2012 financial results news conference yesterday, and despite the Japanese tsunami, the company still turned a $5.4 billion USD profit.

(Even more impressive is the fact that Toyota expects profits to more than double in 2013.)

  1. After all the downs, up is the only way to go! The market was never lacking; it was only the production that was held back, and with all the new models coming, especially those more affordable ones, Toyota should have a bright future just ahead!
  2. With production levels resuming to normal and the huge new products coming from both TOYOTA and LEXUS,  the sales numbers and profit will sky rocket.....I am so proud of what AKIO has accomplished and his focus for the future of the company.....the best it will ever be is yet to come ! Keep up the great work !
  3. Akio is a way better man than I am to be able to lead his company through the most troubling times in all of it's history & still come out on top.Toyota should have a big bash to celebrate their 75th birthday this Aug. 28th!(the day after my baby girl's)
  4. I have a huge amount of respect for Akio, he has and will continue to undoubtedly revamp Toyota into one of the most powerful  & influancial car makers of the world and that i am very excited about. Here in Australia ... by a huge margin, Toyota is the biggest seller of automobiles in this country and often sells more cars then Holden / GM and Ford do combined. 
  5. This is very good news All the barriers that have battered Toyota these few years and yet Toyota has come out on top, which is very respectful..
  6. Can't wait to see the next gen IS
