Does anyone know of any pancake motors w/ double ended shafts?

Hybridizing a RWD vehicle is pretty easy since there's plenty of room to shorten the drive shaft on most. While some FWD vehicles use unequal length CV halfshafts, some use equal length CV halfshafts and an intermediate shaft. Not long enough for a typical DC motor w/ double ended shafts, but if a pancake motor was available from the factory w/ double ended shafts, or could be modded to add another one, we could put together a hybrid "kit" for some FWD cars too.
