We knew this day would come eventually: China is now G.M.'s biggest customer. According to a report issued by G.M., Chinese consumers gobbled up 1.6 million vehicles in the first half of 2013, compared to 1.4 million in the U.S.

The data comes on the heels of news that Ford also posted record numbers for the first six months, with sales in China surging 47 percent and demand up 44 percent in June. Thankfully, the Chinese have yet to figure out how to make a quality vehicle of their own, and it seems that, for the time being, they will be looking to foreign companies to fill their seemingly insatiable appetite for new cars.
