Sometimes stranger things have happened, driven by corporate pressures.

Well theyve stopped making/selling cars with any balls so nothing is impossible.

I doubt it, Toyota, like in the California plant, would have to actually build vehicles in the US with at least 70% American parts, as required by the UAW contract, and get to show a '1' on the VIN. But if they do they will have to pay all their other US workers a decent wage like the workers in the California plant and offer them some decent medical care and other benefits like a good pension plan. Another disadvantage is Toyota will have to start paying US corporate income taxes on the profits they make in the US. One advantage for Toyota though, for the first time, they will honestly be able to say made in the US by Americans ;)
