DETROIT No. 1 U.S. automaker General Motors Co (GM.N) on Tuesday gave an upbeat profit outlook for 2017 that ran contrary to widespread analyst concerns that the country's car industry peaked in 2016 after several years of record or near-record sales. GM said it expects its 2016 earnings to come in at the high end of its previous forecast and said profits will rise 2017.

The company also announced a $5 billion increase to its share buyback programme and additional planned cost savings of $1 billion.
