The biggest news in the industry this morning is GM's release of its first post-bankruptcy financial results, revealing an operating loss of $261 million and a "managerial net loss" of $1.2 billion. But despite the red bottom lines, there may yet be hope as the new GM generated $28 billion in revenue in the third quarter, an increase of more than 20% over the old GM's previous quarter.

A group of 13 CEOs including Carlos Ghosn, Nissan's chief, are getting together to plan how to get EVs up to 75% of total vehicle miles in the U.S. by 2040. Get the full scoop over at GreenCarReports. On a similar--though decidedly less serious--note, CelebsAndCars takes a video look at Ian Ziering's recent quality time spent with the Chevrolet Equinox fuel cell EV.

Lotus also revealed pricing of its Evora 2 + 2 grand touring car today. It starts from $73,500 plus a $1,175 destination charge, putting it squarely in competition with Porsche's 911. It's also a competitor on performance, despite being much less powerful than even the base Carrera, thanks to its lightweight construction. For the full details, hit the link to Motor Authority below.

Around the High Gear Media network, there's a lot happening, with news of Ford's continued Explorer plans, A HURST Mustang debut, FamilyCarGuide's look at how to pick a good tire and whether systems that shut off engines remotely work for or against the car owner, and ChevroletReports' comparison of the 2010 Cobalt against its ostensible predecessor, the Cavalier.

All of these stories and more can be found at the links below, so go explore!
