Today on GreenCar Reports: Tesla outsells luxury makes in California--but is the electric-car company really a luxury brand? Plus former arch-enemy Fisker may be sold, and the EPA stands by its fuel-efficiency tests. All this and more in today's car news, right here on Green Car Reports.

You read it here first: Nissan is testing a new, heat-resistant battery pack for its Leaf electric car, to address complaints from buyers in very, very hot areas.

Would you pay $25 million for Fiskere, or what's left of it? A German company may--though we're not holding our breath just yet.

The EPA defends its gas-mileage testing against Ford's suggestion that EPA test procedures weren't realistic for hybrids.

Detroit Electric is delayed in launching its electric sports car. Color us not all that surprised.

We rounded up all the green cars and concepts expected at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

Our Porsche 918 Spyder photo gallery is pure sensual enjoyment (we'd call it car p0rn, but that might get us flagged).

Tesla outsold Buick, Lincoln, and Porsche in California, but one colleague counters by saying that the Model S isn't a luxury car. Havoc ensued (read the comments on his post).

We drove 580 miles in a Nissan Versa Note hatchback this past weekend; want to guess what kind of gas mileage we got?
