Toyota Motors have always been ahead, in the race of the leading automakers securing top positions every time. Currently it is the 3rd largest automobile manufacturing company. In 2009 the company was hit by the Global Crisis making it suffer a loss of 4.2 billion dollars. This is one of the reasons why it fell to the 3rd position with a global production of around 8 million. But the unofficial stats say that they manufactured more than 9 million automobiles. Toyota has announced that in 2013 it will cross the 10 million mark making it the first automaker to do so.
