Toyota Considering Jet Business, We Can't Wait For The Planery, Aerica And Jetra

Soon to be the number one automaker in the world, Toyota has a little extra coin just sitting around the office. Originally, they were going to spend that extra 10 billion yen on something awesome, like an indoor karting track. Instead, they're going to probably throw $100 million into a passenger jet company with Mitsubishi, which already makes small planes under its Mitsubishi Regional Jet project. We wonder if this isn't a case of industrial peer pressure.

I mean, there's already the Honda Jet. Comfortable, safe planes with the names that are the approximation of English words are on the horizon. [AFP via]
