APNewsBreak: Toyota headed to record global sales

FILE - In this June 25, 2009 file photo, new President of Toyota Motor Corp. Akio Toyoda, right, poses for a photo session with Executive Vice Presidents Yukitoshi Funo during a press conference by the Japanese automaker's new executives at a Toyota showroom in Tokyo. Toyota is shrugging off a sales plunge in China set off by a territorial dispute and says it is headed to a record year on the back of strong growth in the rest of Asia and the U.S. Funo acknowledged Monday, Oct. 29, 2012, that achieving the company's target of 9.76 million vehicle sales this year will be harder because of the problems in China. Violent protests and a call to boycott Japanese goods erupted after Tokyo nationalized tiny islands that are controlled by Japan but claimed by Beijing. (AP Photo/Koji Sasahara, File)
