The Panamera models reconcile contradictions. They are vitalised by the conflict between comfort and dynamics and between sporty performance and efficiency. Can three letters intensify this conflict? The answer is seen on racetracks and on roads. That’s where Porsche has written the abbreviation GTS into history – and is how the Panamera GTS has become the thoroughbred athlete of the family.
The figures sum it up: 324 kW (440 hp) power output and a maximum torque of 520 Nm. The 4.8-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine with ram induction is extremely responsive. 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and the active allwheel drive of Porsche Traction Management (PTM) transmit the engine power of the Panamera GTS adeptly to the tarmac. The sports exhaust system and the adaptive air suspension with ‘normal level’ lowered by 10 mm are fitted as standard. The brake system, wheels, front end and four-way rear spoiler have been carried over from the Panamera Turbo. The sideskirts are styled in matt black.
This is driving pleasure the GTS way – accompanied by a thunderous soundtrack.
The sporty characteristics of the Panamera GTS continue seamlessly into the interior in the form of leather and Alcantara and the carbon interior package, the ‘GTS’ logo in the rev counter, on the headrests and on the door sill guards in brushed aluminium. Alcantara is the material used for the seat centres of the adaptive Sports seats, the armrests of the centre console and the roof lining. The SportDesign steering wheel is fitted as standard. On request, it is possible to have the rim finished in black Alcantara.
Two optional trim packages are available in conjunction with the black Alcantara. They further emphasise the sporty attitude of the interior. The edges of the seat belts and the stitching on the dashboard, door waist rails, seats, and the armrests on the centre console and doors are in Carmine Red or GT Silver. The headrests of all four seats are embroidered with the ‘GTS’ logo in the same colour.
