Not gonna happen. Toyota has already politely said words to the effect that meeting California's deadline will be very difficult. Note that when the Japanese say, "Is verrry difficult," what they actually mean is, "Not gonna happen." (It is considered impolite to be so blunt.)
I believe the quote goes something like this; "Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." -John Adams.
Also, there is always "Never argue with an idiot because they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience." -Mark Twain

Yes, when I was developing software for counterparts in Tokyo, “minor difficulties” = “endless boot loop”. Politeness and understatement is a way of life in Japan.
