Many might disagree but the Porsche Panamera, the Sport Turismo especially, is the ultimate 4-door expression of Porsche excellence. With the exception of the GT 911s, it might be tops all around.
That essentially sums up the GTS trim. Unlike what many think, GTS does not stand for performance or speed, it signifies the best of the best when it comes to features, in the name of luxury and Getting There Speedily…
The new Porsche Panamera GTS and Panamera GTS Sport Turismo will both be powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 which will produce 453-horsepower and 457 lb.-ft. of torque. With Porsche Traction Management AWD and 8-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission, the GTS are capable of reaching 100 km/h in a scant 4.1 seconds thanks also the standard Sport Chrono package.
Other standard features will include a Sport Exhaust System, a three-chamber air suspension along with the Sport Chassis (which lowers the car by 10mm), and a number of interior and exterior upgrades.
The cars arrive in Canada in mid-2019. Pricing for the Panamera GTS begins at $146,200 while the dead-sexy Panamera GTS Sport Turismo will start at $153,300.
