According to a report by the Associated Press, Akio Toyoda, the newly installed CEO of Toyota, confirmed that the company will go ahead with plans to build a sportscar in collaboration with Subaru.
"I am very excited about it and I plan to fast-track it," Toyoda said.
Toyoda also told an audience at a management seminar in Traverse City, MI that he feels as though the company is at a new beginning that requires a new way of thinking.
"I want to see Toyota build cars that are fun and exciting to drive," he said.
Seems like we've heard that one before.
