We thank Mr. Toyoda for his passionate pursuit of perfection and the road he has paved for the future. At this time, we would like to send our condolences to the Toyoda family and celebrate the accomplishments Mr. Toyoda has created on his century long journey.

Think of everything that he witnessed in 100 years, and all of the lives that he influenced directly and indirectly with his passion. We would be blessed to be 1/2 as fortunate.

Not only was he the driving force behind Lexus, he pretty much made Toyota who they are today. It was this guy's obsession with engineering and kaizen that led to the Toyota Production System and how Toyota operates its plants and its quality control standards. RIP and thank you for your contributions to the auto industry and to the cars that millions of us enjoy.
