There were some 5-cylinder 4000s around from 1980-1981 (either
the 4000 5+5 or some 4000 automatics).  All later U.S. 4000s were
4-cylinder, except quattros and coupes, which were 5-cylinder.
The 4000CS was a special commemorative special edition 4000 from
1986-87, but they were 4-cylinder.

The Quantum front-drive sedans were a close relative to the 4000,
and virtually identical to the 4000 under the hood as well as
the front suspension; but the Quantum has a different rear suspension
from the 4000.  The Quantum Syncro, on the other hand, is identical
in the rear suspension to the 4000 quattro.
