The sad tale of Pontiac winding down its existence as a brand continued today with the announcement from GM that the Vibe would cease production by the end of August. The Vibe is produced at the NUMMI plant in Fremont, California, where its sister car, the Toyota Matrix is produced. Production of the Toyota Matrix continues, so fans of the Vibe still have an option.
The Vibe holds the distinction of being one of the “good” cars sold by “Bad GM”. As such, some held hope the Vibe would be reborn as a Chevy, but it appears that will not be the case. GM did say it will remain in talks with Toyota to discuss future vehicles to be built at NUMMI.
