Porsche Panamera GTS Debuts With 453 HP

Enlarge Image The Porsche Panamera and Sport Turismo are both being treated to Porsche's beloved GTS trim spec and we're stoked.                  Porsche

V8-powered sedan and wagon will hit 100km/h in 4.1 seconds, with a top speed nudging 300km/h. The brakes hide behind 20-inch alloy wheels as standard, while there are unique body add-ons and graphics to better differentiate the vehicle from its more mundane brethren.

The sports chassis in the two GTS models has been lowered by 10 mm, while the automaker says its Porsche Active Suspension Management function has been "adapted for an even sportier calibration". The engine is, of course, mated to all four wheels via an eight-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. Porsche's first road-approved sports auto, the 904 Carrera GTS, was launched in 1963, bringing racing tech to the streets.

As is typical with a GTS-trim auto, the standard equipment list is a greatest hits album of the standard Panamera's options list.

Porsche's order books are open now for both the GTS and GTS Sport Turismo, with prices starting at $129,350 for the former and $135,550 for the latter. This powerplant, Porsche promises, serves up an "emotional sound and driving experience" thanks to its standard sports exhaust system.

Mega Millions, Powerball Jackpots Total Almost $1 Billion
Feeling lucky? Then you may want to buy a Mega Millions ticket, as the multi-state lottery game approaches a record jackpot. And there's even more fun with $862 million in combined jackpots for Mega Millions and Powerball .

GTS cars have Porsche's "Sport Design" bodykit fitted with plenty of black accents, and roll on 20-inch alloys. This brings extra black detailing up front and at the rear, plus a variety of darker elements across the body. The standard package also includes a heated multifunction sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles and Alcantara trim and the Connect Plus module for a wide range of digital services. You can have the interior GTS-ified as well, with custom tachometers, designer seams, and Carmine Red or Chalk GTS Logos.

The GTS treatment has returned to the Panamera and the Panamera Sport Turismo for the first time for the current-generation four-door.

However, the GTS has one feature that is new to the entire Panamera range - the head-up display.

Another first for the Panamera GTS is the heads-up display, which projects all relevant information onto the windshield in full colour. The first-gen Panamera GTS debut in 2011. This was followed by the 924 GTS and 928 GTS, which cultivated the concept throughout the 1980s and 90s.
