It's not just the Automotive world.
My new skis are "S9"'s from Dynastar. In fact, the whole Dynastar
line has gone to this style: S=slalom, G=GS, V=vertical, X=cross,
followed by a number: 1=cheap, 9=top-of-the-line.
At least I've stopped seeing "turbo" skis (honest, I saw a pair
not too long ago. Hart, I think....).
