I guess it should come as no surprise that GM loses a lot of money on every car that leaves the showroom, considering that the company's North American car operation is bleeding a few hundred million dollars every month. Harbour Consulting puts a number on this, and that number is $1,227 per car for the first half of this year. Ford loses only $139 per car; unfortunately, that still tends to add up when multiplied by 3 million or so vehicles per year. Chrysler manages to make $189/vehicle, while Nissan busts out a profit of nearly $1826 per vehicle, Toyota takes home $1488, and Honda nets $1203.
