Porsche has revealed a GTS upgrade for the Panamera family. The new model is available across standard and Sport Turismo models, and is priced from £105,963.

The original Panamera range was first given a GTS model back in 2011, but this is the first appearance of the moniker on the Sport Turismo estate version unveiled in 2017.

In GTS guise, the Porsche Panamera gains a 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine that develops 460hp and 620Nm of torque – an upgrade of 20hp and 100Nm over the previous version of the engine.

That extra punch enables the GTS models to get from 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 181mph (saloon) and 179mph (Sport Turismo). The engine is paired with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Porsche has fitted the GTS with adaptive air suspension to aid comfort, but a slightly lower ride height should also improve cornering performance. Larger brakes have also been applied for improved stopping power.

   

To further distinguish them from the rest of the Panamera range, Porsche has given the GTS models a unique design package that adds black trim to the front and rear splitters, as well as 20-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, customers can choose to spec the GTS package that adds customisable elements, such as the rev counter, trim detailing and GTS logos in contrasting Carmine Red or Crayon. They would sit alongside Alcantara upholstery and aluminium trim, as well as a sports steering wheel.

Porsche has also introduced a head-up display to the GTS – a first for the Panamera.

Prices for the Porsche Panamera GTS models start from £105,963. Order books are open now.
