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.

*Where it is safe and legal to do so. i.e a track or racing facility.
Fuel consumption of 27.4 mpg (10.3 l/100 km) (Sport Turismo: 26.6 mpg (10.6 l/100 km)); the CO2 emissions are 235 g/km (Sport Turismo: 242 g/km).
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
