While we are always brimming with anticipation when Porsche rolls out a new 911, we've sort of become accustomed to the progression of debuts that follows the new model's initial unveiling. The Carrera and Carrera S are usually followed by Cabriolet and Cabriolet S, then the Carrera 4 S and so on. It's a fun little pulling-back of the curtain, but we usually know what to expect.

With that in mind, we bring you this video from the German sportscar marker, displaying its 991-generation GT3 Cup in all its stripped-down, track-ready hotness. All Porsche leaves us with is the YouTube description, "One very special Porsche 911. Not for the road. Only for the racetrack." That's all well and good, but if the last 911 and the one before that have taught us anything, it's that Porsche will be taking "strong enough for a track, made for the road" GT3 variant in the not-too-distant future.

In the mean time, feast your eyes on the video below of this race-ready, rear-engined beast.

      Attention auto manufacturers, THIS is how you "tease" enthusiasts. Not by showing a 4x4 square inch section of a tail light.

      It's always exciting to see a new GT3, but i'm afraid the new model will lose the manual gearbox.

          This is the Cup Car for the one make series. The GT3 Endurance car will be much wider and quite a bit meaner. As for flippy paddles Porsche seems pretty committed to keeping the manual gearbox in the road going GT3. In today's motor sports you cant afford to use a standard box anymore. Twin clutch sequential box is so much faster. The newer racing versions should be very good.
