I thought so, too - until I found an 86 5KCS in the junkyard, same exact
interior as my tq - tan leather w/Alcantra inserts - but not a turbo. I
figured from that point that the CS just meant the interior appointments.

As an aside, my car sez 5KCS, and quattro - but nowhere is it indicated a
turbo on the car or the title - gives me a nice healthy 'lowered' insurance
