Typical media not fact checking. I'm also interested in aviation and you would be surprised at how often the press screws up facts on aircraft.

To be fair to the press, this press release may be a translation of a Japanese press release. Nikkei is a Japanese business news source and this story came from it:

But I do believe that Subaru would like to increase production of Subaru's at Lafayette as they are now experiencing shortages of vehicles to meet consumer demand at dealerships.

The Tribeca model has been dropped, which means there is unused production capacity at the plant. And a $400 million dollar investment in the plant would indicate bringing assembly of another model to the plant. The Forester would be a logical choice for additional model production.

Dropping Camry production would also aloo more Subaru production capacity.
