You mean like Subaru Impreza WRX STi Spec-C? I like the BMW-type naming, M5, M3, 540i, 540i Sport......etc. It's easy to define classes, 3, 5, 7, X. It helps people differentiate and make the easy assumption, higher number=bigger, more power. STi does a similar thing, though by generation, S201, S202, S401... Actually, now, come to think of it, the Impreza should be a 2-series, the Forester a 3-series, the Legacy a 4-series, the B-11S a 5-series, the 7-passenger a 6-series. Oh what the hell, lets just keep it as is unless someone can come up with a better naming scheme! I don't mind Legacy, Impreza, Forester... , but I think they could use a little more logical naming system. The Forester has moved ever so slightly in that direction (X, XS, XT) and it makes sense. Use a single base letter for model designation and run with it. Just another 1 penny idea.
