The next iteration of the Porsche 911 is set to debut at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show and with the unveiling just a few months away, that means the factory-authorized teasers can officially begin.

Porsche snagged the video crew from Tangent Vector to tag along during the 991's final prototype validation in South Africa, and you can find the resulting teaser after the jump. But before you make the leap...

In the span of one minute and 22 seconds, Porsche has managed to squeeze in a host of details about the next 911, with coupe, convertible and psuedo-targa models all in attendance. The most telling shots we've assembled in the gallery above, including a Panamera-inspired center console, an obviously lengthened wheelbase (somewhere in the neighborhood of 97 inches) and an engine that continues to slowly creep forward with each successive generation. Naturally, we can't tell if these mules are powered by the new 350-horsepower 3.5-liter flat-six that will be shared by the Boxster S or the uprated 3.8-liter mill, but check out the full video below the fold to find the rest of the hidden clues.

      I know Autoblog is all about testosterone, but that video was awesome. Something about the Porsche engineers letting those South African children play in the prototype vehicles was incredibly touching. Well...just thought I'd share [wipes away tear...]...

      If you pause the video at 1:11 and zoom in you can clearly see that the shifters pattern inclueds a 7th gear on the top right next to 5th.

      You might not like the rear end as much, I know I dont, but it will grow on you as time goes by. One thing for sure is it will be a better car in every way than the one it replaces.....as hard as that might be to imagine.

      I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, CoolCent. ├žom

      "Naturally, we can't tell if these mules are powered by the new 350-horsepower 3.5-liter flat-six that will be shared by the Boxster S or the uprated 3.8-liter mill" 3.5 liter? Did you guys mean 350-horsepower 3.4 liter flat-six that will be shared by the Boxster S...

        I thought the boxster going by reports was going turbo-4 only... and the cayman was meant to be remaining 6-cyl

      Exactly what I thought the 911 needed. A perfect bulldog stance. Can't wait to see what it looks like. In the preview picture above, it seems Porsche is integrating Audi's current design language with the rear of their new cars. That flat rear drop off you see on the new A7.
