Porsche Panamera GTS is the "Auto Bild Sportscar" of the YearThe sporty Gran Turismo wins readers' award

Stuttgart. The Porsche Panamera GTS is a four-door sports car. It was honoured with the "Auto Bild Sportscar of the Year 2012" award in the category "Series Sedan". In the Porsche world, GTS stands for Gran Turismo Sport and has been a mark of extraordinary Porsche performance since the legendary 904 Carrera GTS of 1963. The Panamera GTS is powered by a dynamic, naturally aspirated V8 engine with 4.8 litre displacement, generating 430 hp (316 kW). The maximum torque is 520 Nm. The series sports exhaust system of the Panamera GTS sounds exceptionally emotional. The body, lowered by ten millimetres, and the extremely sporty chassis with adaptive air suspension and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) make it highly suitable for the racetrack ─ without limiting suitability for everyday life.
