Though Porsche won't be feeding us the full 911 enchilada until tomorrow's Geneva-based festivities, we have managed to scare up some official images of the 2014 911 GT3, as well as the all-new 911 GT3 Cup. As Porsche is celebrating 50 years of the 911, we anticipate a good day for great cars.

The new GT3 looks every bit the proper successor to the racy 911 nameplate, with a fixed rear wing large enough to serve cocktails on, a curvaceous body kit and 20-inch wheels that offer a dominating on-road stance. It's a good bet that Porsche will have coaxed something like 450 horsepower from the naturally aspirated, 3.8-liter flat-six engine that hangs over the car's rear axle. Rumor has it that the new GT3 will be PDK-only, as well. Nothing official from Porsche on that front, yet, but we're hoping it's incorrect.

Should the mental quickness and imposing wingery of the standard GT3 not be enough for you, future racecar driver, Porsche is also bringing a GT3 Cup car to Geneva. The German automaker has given just a few scant details about this Cup car – 460 hp on tap, a production run of just 2,400 units – including three images of the kitted out racer. Certainly more and finer details will emerge, when Porsche shines the spotlights on its new 911s tomorrow.

Sporty premieres in the 911 anniversary year

Stuttgart. Porsche AG has not only begun the year particularly successful, but 2013 also marks the anniversary of the company's most iconic car: the Porsche 911 has for the last 50 years been equally at home on the racetrack as on the road. Its genetic DNA can be found in every other Porsche model. At over 820,000 units built, the 911 is the world's most successful sports car ever. In addition to the anniversary, the International Motor Show in Geneva also provides a stage for two particularly sporty premieres on the Porsche stand in hall 1. The press conference on the stand takes place on March 5 at 10.45 CET.

The title 'World Premiere' truly applies here to the first appearance of an extremely exciting 911 model, which awaits with new engineering highlights, plus a whole lot more. The car's driving dynamics and driving excitement are at an even higher level than before. For the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup this will be its first public unveiling. Delivering 460 hp, this single-make cup racer is the latest version of the car, which is, with a total of 2,400 units, the best-selling and most successful sports car in the world. The new 911 GT3 Cup is initially being deployed in the international Porsche Supercup 2013.

      The 997.2 GT3s are going to become collector's items in the same way the last 993s did. They represent the best of an era that has ended.

        There could be something to say for this little snippet of truth. The last row-your-own GT3s. So far, I think if I could own any GT3 ever made, it would be the GT3-RS 4.0...

      No manual = not interested. Sincerely, a 997 owner.

      Anyone one else notice anything odd about this "photo"?? I mean what is it ... Photoshopped? It can't be a picture of an actual Porsche on a road. Of course it's not the end of the world ... but the longer I look at it, the cheesier it gets. When I first saw it, I thought it was an article about a videogame.

      Anyone else bothered by this "photo" What is it ... Photoshopped? Purely animation?? It's not the end of the world, but the longer I look at it, the cheesier it looks.
