Toyota says its Camry is certain to win the U.
S. best-selling car title for the 11th straight year.
With slightly more than two months left in 2012, the Camry's nearly 67,000-unit lead over the second-place Honda Accord is insurmountable, said Rick LoFaso, Toyota corporate manager for car marketing.
"They couldn't catch us if they wanted to," LoFaso said.
More impressive, he said, is that the Camry will exceed Toyota's ambitious 2012 sales target by 15 percentage points. Originally, Toyota projected it would sell 360,000 Camrys this year. But LoFaso says Toyota should finish the year at 400,000 Camrys sold.
Through September, Toyota sold 314,788 Camrys in the United States, up 37 percent from the same nine months last year.
