This comes from the web site gminsidernews.com. I don’t know how valid it is. There are no named sources,  but here is what it wrote about NUMMI:

GM’s Stake in NUMMI, Fremont, CA (TBA?)Reports are out this afternoon that GM is going to try to build another product at the Toyota joint-venture plant, but GMI sources say otherwise. According to our sources, GM’s first priority in talks with Toyota is going to be to get out of the JV entirely, but if they are unable to get out of the JV with Toyota they will elect to build a non-Pontiac product there. Currently the NUMMI plant builds the Pontiac Vibe, which is based on the Toyota Corolla platform. GMI was also told that if GM ends up in bankruptcy, the NUMMI JV will be part of “BadGM” in the split of the company.
