Akio drives his favorite Toyota Corolla

Akio Toyoda E30 Toyota Corolla

In honor of the Corolla’s 50th anniversary, Toyota has posted a photo of their CEO in a TE71. “My used 4th generation Corolla 1600 GT was like a best friend to me. I shared my youth with it! That car showed me the joy of driving. It represented freedom, fun and first forays in the business world,” Toyoda said. “Not only did my Corolla influence me and my own path, but this vehicle — supported by fans and customers —helped transform Toyota as a company around the world.” This is a twin-cam 2T-G powered sedan that was never sold in the US. He is also apparently partial to TE27s. Akio Toyoda is the man.
