Toyota (TM) - Get Report says it's planning further production cuts in North America to match the precipitous sales slump that is hurting all automakers, according to a published media report.

The automaker is increasing the number of days its facilities don't produce autos this month and next month, according to a report

The Wall Street Journal

published on its Web site late Friday. The reductions will vary plant by plant, depending on the products and inventory at each facility, the report said.

"This affects production at each plant we have in North America," said company spokesman Mike Goss, according to the report. "Suffice

it to say, inventory is too high in general."

The cuts come on top of reductions announced in November, when Toyota cut production days at all of its factories for December, the report noted.
