Reports of a car slotting between the Porsche 911 and 918 have been swirling for quite a while and now the automaker has registered a new name it the German patent office.

It’s a curious revelation, though, because the name isn’t what you might expect — at least not from a numbers perspective. That’s because Porsche registered “919.” Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean anything. After all, automakers often register names without plans to actually use the name.

The upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder can cost almost $1 million when well equipped, so it’s hard to imagine the company being serious about offering a car much more expensive than that.
