Porsche Panamera GTS and GTS Sport Turismo Make 453 Horses Each
Porsche has announced that the Panamera GTS is returning for 2019, and is bringing along with it a Panamera GTS Sport Turismo wagon. Both variants share the same 4.0-liter biturbo V8 heart that makes 453 hp and 457 lb-ft. of torque. Both GTS models include standard Sport Chrono, Porsche Traction Management all-wheel drive, Porsche Active Suspension Management, and Sport Design package.
Both cars can hit 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. The standard Panamera GTS has a higher top speed at 181 mph, with the GTS Sport Turismo topping out at 179 mph. Both use the same 8-speed PDK transmission and are 10mm lower than normal Panamera models. GTS flavors also get larger brakes with 390mm (15.35″) front rotors and 365mm (14.3″) rear rotors.
Each one rolls on 20″ black Panamera Design rims, and gets the Sport Chrono package, black sport exhaust, and other black trim elements. Options include an Interior GTS package that allows customization of the rev counter, designer seams, and GTS logos on the seats. GTS cars also get a heads-up display that is customizable, a first for the Panamera range.
Prices for the Panamera GTS start at $129,350, while the GTS Sport Turismo starts at $135,550. Expect both models to arrive in the US in the back half of 2019.
