yes, but that's old news and not sure if they still make it or not.. you can just do a simple Google search and find all available information and just to note, Daewoo's version is an South Korean or Asian only car, I think. In addition, there was also another car that uses the same platform.

Here is the list of cars with the Kappa Platform.

Production vehicles based on the Kappa platform:
* Pontiac Solstice
* Saturn Sky
* Opel GT
* Daewoo G2X (like the Opel GT, it is identical to the Saturn Sky (in other words, only the logo is different), and was built alongside both models as well as the Pontiac Solstice at the Wilmington plant)
* Breckland Beira (this is the UK highend-luxury version that comes with a 6.0-liter, 400HP, LS2 V8 engine that runs on LP or gas and has a $100,000+ price tag.. Also I have a feeling that they went out of business as there is no more news from Breckland since this car and their website expired a couple years ago and was never renewed to this day)

Concept vehicles based on the kappa platform but were not produced:

* Chevrolet Nomad
* Saturn Curve
* Vauxhall VX Lightning


Here's the Breckland and Daewoo:

And here are the Chevy, Saturn, & Vauxhall Concepts:

The Breckland Biera is a rebodied Opel GT, with an engine transplant. There were only 2 - 3 of them made.

Tauro Sport Auto, a Spanish sports car manufacturer purchased the last 30 or so Kappa platforms and produced them as Tauro V8 Spiders with corvette engines. We missed that boat too. Gone the way of the Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Sky, Opel GT, and Daewoo G2X.
