That's 20 horsepower and 100 Nm more in the GTS than in the previous version. The ride height has been lowered by 10 mm. There are no interruptions in tractive force as power is transmitted to the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive system by the eight-speed PDK dual clutch gearbox.

Pretty much any time Porsche gives us all a GTS variant of one of its models, it's cause for celebration because they always sit in the sweet spot between cost and performance. The two models achieve a top speed of 292 and 289 km/h respectively.

Porsche's latest Panamera is now available in GTS flavour, the new model essentially bridging the gap between the 4S and Turbo models and ultimately giving customers a more affordable V8 option. This powerplant, Porsche promises, serves up an "emotional sound and driving experience" thanks to its standard sports exhaust system. The big brakes (390 mm front, 365 mm rear) will be a match to the V8. For example, the Sport Design package with black exterior elements and large Alcantara surfaces in the interior is included as standard.

In addition to the extra oomph on offer, the GTS models gain added dynamic chassis systems (including three-chamber air suspension) plus unique design elements and a little more equipment.

The world has changed since people first raised hell about Porsche building a four-door saloon, and these days the Panamera is one of the fanciest and fastest ways to rocket four people around in sumptuous style. On the inside, Alcantara leather and anodized aluminum can be found everywhere; the steering wheel comes heated as standard and is also covered in Alcantara. Officially, GTS stands for Gran Turismo Sport, which would make the complete name of the new model a tricky-to-pronounce Gran Turismo Sport Sport Turismo. The Panamera GTS will also be available with an all-new head-up display. An optional interior package, meanwhile, allows buyers to customise their vehicles with various design elements, such as a rev counter, designer seams, and GTS logos in the contrasting shades of Carmine Red or Crayon. This was followed by the 924 GTS and 928 GTS, which cultivated the concept throughout the 1980s and 90s.
