I doubt there's a specific one, but you can get a multi-fit or universal hitch. Believe it or not, I had one on my AE86 for a short time. Here's a multi-fit place:

I had to custom make one. I used 1x2 box tubing and off set it so that the recever is behind the tag. i installed a flip down tag holder. but i installed it to flip up so the cops can still somewhat see my tage. It works great for my new jet ski. my car pulls it like a champ.

Ok so shamefully I do have a little info on this matter, do to the fact I used to work for a company that sold and installed hitches. The company was U-haul, although this was like three years ago. I really don't remember if they made a hitch for our cars, but the brand they used was called "Drawtite". And believe it or not we sold hitches for cars as small as (Honda Civics, Geo Trackers,etc.). These hitches came in 3 class's (Class 1,2, and 3) Class one could tow up to 2000lb max, Classs three up 5000lb max. So, if you had a civic maybe you could tow a jet ski or small garden trailer, but not a boat. But, the more important fact is w/ most of the luxury cars with the rear bumpers that came down low, cutting of the bumper would be needed. So, a lot of customers who had these cars would change there minds! So, in ending this if they do make give you local U-haul a call, I wouldn't recommend towing any thing heaver then a jet ski. Also I would say to get a tranny cooler they sell those as well.
Well I hope this helps you, sorry if I dragged it out.

Default hitch

Draw tite doesn't make a hitch for our cars. They have to be custom made. U-haul said that they can have one made, and it would cost $400 and three weeks to make. All i need is a class 1 hitch. So i made one for less than half of what u-haul wanted. And thats wired! And if you were to see my car you wouldn't ever know it has a trailer hitch.

No one made one as far as I could tell, and I looked, a LOT. I just ended up having one built from scratch.

Mine's a 2" reciever, Class III, rated at 3500lbs.

I tow with mine all the time.

This is sad... none of the websites even recognize our model CURT, RIGID, DrawTite... All I want is to store my cooler on a cargo carrier.
