The article refers to retail cars sales, not total vehicle sales and GM and Ford sell more light trucks than Toyota sells cars and trucks combined. ;)

Mike, you are full of nonsense as usual. Did you read the article?
Here is a quote:
"Toyota Motor Corp. is making a big bet that it can ride a host of new models past struggling General Motors Corp. next year to become the world's biggest maker of cars.
Late next month, when the Japanese auto maker unveils its 2006 targets, it could set the ambitious goal of producing as many as 9.2 million cars, say people familiar with the plan. That would be an 11% leap from the 8.28 million cars Toyota expects to make in its current fiscal year, which ends in March.
GM -- which has been the world's No. 1 auto maker for more than 70 years -- has not outlined its production plans for 2006. It has projected it will build 9.1 million cars this year. "
Note that these are production numbers, not retail sales.
