When I chose to shoot with all the weapons from my vehicle to I have primary target for every weapon or do I get only one primary target for them all?

I know which option I would prefer, but I just cant find any information in the matter.

In my opinion, as it is one shooting action, there is one primary target.

You don't make one Shooting Action with all Weapons but a Shoting Action with each Weapon.
If you had to fire with all weapons on the same target model (plus additional secondary targets), it would reduce a vehicle like a Grizzly to nothing of value.

Well, it costs 2 actions, but it is still 1 shooting action where you fire all your weapons. But yes, I think you are right.

Do you have any phrases to support this?? As I said, I would prefere to have many primary targets but I haven't found any rules to prove that.

I don't know how I can make it anymore clearer. I highlighted the relevant words...

Just look at the Grizzly I mentioned. This is a tank with a ton of guns. It is a moving bunker, who lumbers across the battlefield and unleashes volleys of bullets in all directions. It has weapons pointing in every direction. If you had to fire all your weapons like one shooting action on one target only a fraction of the weapons can be used. This doesn't sound right. Why would you spend 400 points to just shoot with the main gun and one LMG and ignore all the other weapons?
The only logical conclusion is: When you use Torrent of Fire, every weapon fires at a single target.

Torrent of Fire: Spend 2 Action Points to make
a Shooting Action with each of the Model’s
Ranged Weapons simultaneously.

See page 34 for what you do when you initiate a Shooting Action, in short.

Announce it.
Pay the AP.
Appoint Primary Target.
Etc.

As each weapon do a Shooting Action they each get a primary target.
