As is tradition at Porsche, GTS stands for Gran Turismo Sport. The first Porsche road-approved sports car, the 904 Carrera GTS, was launched back in 1963, bringing racing technology to the streets, and now Porsche has added two new distinctly sporting models to the GTS range – the new Panamera GTS and Panamera GTS Sport Turismo.
At the heart of both of the new Panamera GTS models is a four-litre V8 engine with 460 hp (338 kW) of output and maximum torque of 620 Nm, which cultivates a particularly emotional driving experience when combined with the standard sports exhaust system. Both models outperform their predecessor by 20 hp (15 kW) and 100 Nm of pulling power, accelerating the Panamera GTS and Panamera GTS Sport Turismo from 0 to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds* (in conjunction with the standard Sport Chrono package), with a top speed of 181 and 179 mph respectively*.
The Sport Design exterior package with Black styling elements, including a new Black nose and Black lower trim at the rear which, in combination with a variety of darker elements, help highlight the more athletic appearance of the new Panamera GTS models.
The level of equipment has also been significantly upgraded in a number of areas. These include the digital Porsche Advanced Cockpit, assist systems such as Porsche InnoDrive including adaptive cruise control, and optional rear-axle steering. The GTS models also feature one highlight that is new to the entire Panamera range – the head-up display. The display can be configured by the driver and projects all relevant information directly into their direct line of sight in full colour.
