Porsche Panamera GTS1 at Porsche Panamera GTS Review by EVO Magazine

Some say the new Porsche Panamera GTS is a real alternative to the BMW M5. But is it?

That’s what you hopefully will find out after watching this video review by EVO Magazine. The GTS offers a refreshingly different feel than the M5 – for one thing it’s the size of a building and it’s fin drivig fast in a building! – but my God it’s hideous. The extra mascara that the GTS sports makes it even less of a looker than the normal Panamera.

The power unit in the new Porsche Panamera GTS is a modified 4.8-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine, delivering 430 hp (316 kW) at 6,700 rpm, trumping the engine in its Panamera S/4S sister models by 30 hp (22 kW). The maximum torque also increased by comparison, from 500 Nm to 520 Nm. The way in which at the push of a button the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmits the engine output to the all-wheel drive (PTM) -thanks to the Sport Chrono package featured as standard without interruption to the power flow -is especially dynamic. This collaboration enables the Porsche Panamera GTS to sprint to 100 km/h in under 4.5 seconds, accelerating on to its top speed of 288 km/h.

With NEDC fuel consumption of 10.9 l/100 km – only 10.7 l/100 km with low-friction tyres – the Porsche Panamera GTS remains as much of an efficiency role model in its milieu as all Porsche models.
