I cannot find any actual articles about this. Were this true, everyone would be talking about it.

Toyota's only offering $1500 cash back, so it ain't too bad. Now.. if they start offering $3000+, then yeah, they're hurting.

I don't think that's what the article says at all (however the writer may be trying to spin the data). It says they're dumping 2016 inventory because of lower sales. Don't most auto sales hit a slump around this time of year, and don't most automakers try to dump existing inventory to make way for next year's models?

No no no! Obviously Toyota is abruptly terminating a romantic relationship with its... offspring...
