    Actually, I guess I could do a little better by downloading the annual reports but I couldn´t be bothered ATM.
    I have no numbers as Ford/GM don't release all of their numbers

    They make higher profits on larger vehicles, like their beloved SUVs. That's what kept Ford profitable...until the SUV market bust.

    I would assume newer cars out of Detroit would be slimmer on profit margins than in the past to try and compete with Japan/ Korea.

    That was a bit of a thread bump, but for this thread not much has really been said.

    Here's a bit of recent information on a few recently profitable companies (all in USD):

    Average profit per vehicle sold:

    Audi: $2047
    BMW: $3207
    DC/MB/Smart: $917
    Porsche: $28,247
    Toyota: $2182
    VW: $430

    I don't think that's entirely accurate since at least Porsche's numbers include other profits not related to the sales of cars to calculate that number.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    Yeah, I think those figures have come up before and all that'd be done to get them was divide reported profit by cars sold.
