All of the 911 models after the first generation technically do have a different name like 993, 996 ,997, and the new 991 for example. For name recognition sake I suppose, the original model name has been kept though.
The 993, 997, etc.....are internal names really. They are not used much on literature so I kind of equate them to the body designations BMW uses (e30, e36, e46, e92,).....make sense?
