Nope ! Try again !

there is a difference between the 5000cs and the 5000 cs Commerative Series.  
They are different models with different vin #'s.  The Commerative Series is 
basicly the same as the 5000s, but it has the deluxe 12 speaker stereo, 
leather interior, 14" snowflake alloys, and a large chrome strip with the four 
rings that runs the length of the doors just underneath the moulding strip.  
It also has the full tailight lenses across the trunk, and is a NON-TURBO car. 
So, it is a 5000s with a glorified trim package that makes it look like a 
turbo. The only possible mechanical difference that I am aware of is the 
brakes.  My '86 5000cs Commerative Series has rear discs, and I know that some 
5000s have rear drums.

So, the cs couldn't stand for commerative series, because then my car would be 
a "1986 5000 commerative series commerative series" (hee hee)

This brings us back to square 1. My guess is that "s" stands for sport and 
"cs" stands for club sport. I am probably wrong.
