Japan still reigns supreme as the country that manufactures the most automobiles. And based on the country’s current production, it doesn’t look as if Japan is going to surrender this title anytime soon.
That doesn’t mean that China, the United States and Germany are slouches. These countries, which rank second, third and fourth, continue to produce a significant number of automobiles each year, too.
Japan produced more than 11.5 million vehicles in 2008. That gave the country a healthy lead on runner-up China, which produced more than 9.3 million vehicles. The United States, even with its down economy and domestic automaker problems, wasn’t too far behind China. The country produced more than 8.7 million vehicles in 2008.

Best Selling Cars of All Time
Some cars are just so good they just keep selling and selling over the decades. Here we’ll look at the best selling cars of all time, including American made, European made and Japanese made.
American Made Cars
American car manufacturers build cars to last, and the top 10 are no exception. Starting at the bottom of the list, the Buick LeSabre sold 6 million models between 1959 and 2005. Just above the LeSabre is the Ford Taurus, which sold even more cars in a shorter period of time: 7.4 million from 1986 to today.
It has been revealed that over 11,000 jobs are to be cut across Europe, 1,400 of those are in the UK. These cuts are happening after Magna, the Canadian-based spare parts venture, agreed to take over Opel and Vauxhall from General Motors.
Magna’s restructuring of Opel is yet another sign that Europe’s auto industry is flagging in the face of the recession, despite the spate of ‘cash incentives’ offered to consumers to buy new cars.
