Info Blegging

Something I've always wondered regarding German armored vehicles from WWII: a lot of times you'll see the designation of the vehicle end with the term "Ausf." followed by a letter -- e.g. Pz.Kpfw.Tiger Ausf.E. I assume it's a designation similar to the American "Model" or British "Mark", but what is the literal translation?

Just for my own satisfaction.
