Yes... Off the top of my head:

They made an FPGA-based 40Mhz 6809... (they say it'll do 10Mips!)

Otay, memory served, but here's a page directly to the info:

[[ I have *no* idea on cost -- just stumbled across it during a google
search a couple of years ago. ]]

Also, if you're looking for something "more updated" there's always the
Hitachi 63C09 - it's 4 Mhz, and has more registers, a 16-bit integer
multiply (with a 32-bit result) and clock for clock is faster than the 6809.
