Porsche themselves decided to have a go at making a tuned Panamera and came up with the GTS. It’s a stiffened, sportier version of the Panamera S.

Distinguishing the GTS from normal Panameras is not going to be easy at first glance. But those of you who know your Porsches will notice this Panamera comes with slightly modified styling, featuring black highlights in front, sides skirts, and the rear apron.

The interior as well is rigorously tailored to the sporty personality with sports seats, SportDesign steering wheel with shift paddles, exclusive GTS leather interior and Alcantara surfaces.

Porsche Panamera GTS is powered by a modified version of the 4.8-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine, developing 430 hp (316 kW) and 500 Nm of torque. These are 30 and 20 more, respectively, than the standard model. With this engine the GTS can accelerate from 0 100 km/h in under 4.5 seconds, and reach a top speed of 288 km/h.

The car should be different in terms of handling though. It comes with the adaptive air suspension and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as standard, but it’s been lowered by 10mm and fitted with 19-inch wheels. It also gets superlative brakes from the Panamera Turbo.

To add a bit of drama, Porsche has also fiddled with the car’s exhausts and air filters, so it now makes a much nicer noise than the S.

This is the coolest version of Porsche Panamera in our opinion. Let’s see how much extra Porsche is going to charge for all these stuff.
