A Mazda employee works on the assembly line of the Mazda6 (Atenza) model at its plant in Hofu, Yamaguchi prefecture, southwestern Japan, Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013. Mazda, the longtime also-ran of Japanese automakers, shows a new super-efficient plant that's rolling off vehicles at a stunning rate of one every 54 seconds. The plant is part of the reason why Mazda Motor Corp. has managed to defy skeptics who've predicted fates ranging from bankruptcy to a buyout by Chinese interests. (AP Photo/Shizuo Kambayashi)
