The Panamera models reconcile contradictions. They are vitalised by the conflict between comfort and dynamics and between sporty performance and efficiency. Can three letters intensify this conflict? The answer is seen on racetracks and on roads. That’s where Porsche has written the abbreviation GTS into history – and is how the Panamera GTS has become the thoroughbred athlete of the family.
The figures sum it up: 324 kW (440 hp) power output and a maximum torque of 520 Nm. The 4.8-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine with ram induction is extremely responsive. 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and the active allwheel drive of Porsche Traction Management (PTM) transmit the engine power of the Panamera GTS adeptly to the tarmac. The sports exhaust system and the adaptive air suspension with ‘normal level’ lowered by 10 mm are fitted as standard. The brake system, wheels, front end and four-way rear spoiler have been carried over from the Panamera Turbo. The sideskirts are styled in matt black.
This is driving pleasure the GTS way – accompanied by a thunderous soundtrack.

The exhaust system of the Panamera models is made from long-life stainless steel. The primary and main catalytic converters heat up rapidly and help to deliver effective emissions control. At high revs and under maximum engine load, the exhaust system of the Panamera Turbo opens flaps for increased throughput and an even more thunderous sound.
The tailpipes of the Panamera GTS sports exhaust system have a matt black painted finish as standard. At the touch of a button or when SPORT or SPORT PLUS mode is enabled, the sports exhaust system provides that characteristic motorsport sound – another unmistakable expression of the individuality of the Panamera GTS.
