I remembered reading that GT stands for Grand Touring, CE for Classic Edition, and XLE for eXtra Luxury Edition.

Yes, it does stand for Special Edition. But I'd like to think of it as SE-R, SE-"Rare", since it's a 5-speed. I should definitely add that R, come to think of it, just to scare those ricers away.
