Re: Where'd This Phase II Cutaway Come From...?

The TOS ship was Constitution-class, the TMP ship was Enterprise-class, but Starfleet in practice conflated the two for obvious reasons — the latter was a 1:1 replacement for the former, to the extent of sometimes being called a ”refit“, even though for all practical purposes, it really was a ground-up redesign. It's an unusual design situation, so we can expect unusual naming as well. I wouldn't reject Probert's intent of Enterprise-class, which also ended up in official sources of the time.
