If you set yourself ambitious goals in Iife‚ you have to approach them with Courage and passion. The Panamera does just that, blazing a trail with no compromises‚ uniting apparent opposites: performance and comfort, dynamism and efﬁciency‚ work and family. If you pursue ambitious goals, you also have to stay focused, concentrate on your strengths and on the essential. Three letters embody this perfectly and together with the name Porsche have made history on and off the race track: GTS. This has always been our byword for the direct‚ unadulterated, powerful driving pleasure, that combines top per- formance on the race track with exhilarating performance in everyday. For our engineers it was an honour to undertake the challenge of bringing together the concept of a Panamera with the GTS principle. This is the result: the new Panamera GTS and the new Panamera GTS Sport Turismo, a pure, dynamic driving experience.
The special dynamic of the new Panamera GTS models are clear from ﬁrst glance, most notably thanks to the incor- poration of the contrasting colour of black. Elements suoh as the side window trims, the side air outIets‚ the logos on the rear and the tailpipes of the sports exhaust system‚ all ﬁnished in black (high-gloss). In addition‚ the Iower section of the Panamera GTS models and the characteristic rear Iight strip are also tinted. Tinted LED main headlights with matrix beam including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus can all be added as an option. Both GTS models feature the SportDesign package as Standard, with distinctive front and rear sections. The adaptive rear spoiler of the Panamera GTS opens after it has extended, which makes it much broader and ensures the Iift in the rear axle is efﬁciently reduced. The adaptive roof spoiler of the Panamera GTS Sport Turismo ensures exceptional driv- ing stability. The powerful brakes with red brake calipers characterise both models, as does the Iowered 10mm sport Chassis with adaptive air suspension. Optional ‘GTS’ logos on the Iower edge of the front doors complete the overall sporty image.
The particular strength of the Panamera. in uniting opposites‚ can be seen as soon as you get in: thought—out er- gonomics and great comfort combine with obvious sporty performance. The combination of black leather with Alcantara@‚ adaptive Sports seats with ‘GTS’ Iogos on the headrests of the front and rear outer seats [upon request for the rear Sports seats in the Panamera GTS Sport Turismo], as weII as trim and door sill guards ﬁnished in brushed aluminium with black anodised ﬁnish Sets a clear example. Even the rim of the multifunction steering wheel and the roof lining are ﬁnished with Alcantarag. A special feature: you have the option of an equipment package in one of two colours for the Panamera GTS models. This includes stitching on the dashboard, the door panels, the seats. the armrest in the centre console and the ﬂoor mats, all ﬁnished with Carmine Red or Crayon coloured thread. The headrests of the four seats with the ‘GTS’ Iogo will be stitched in the same colour. To match: seat belts on the four seats in either Carmine Red or Crayon. For the Panamera GTS models‚ you can of course, if you want‚ also choose the leather, two-tone or club leather inte- rior, available in the other Panamera models — though without applications in Alcantara®.
With the Panamera GT8. it's notjust about the end destination; but the heart racing, pure sporty performance and dy- namic driving pleasure you experience during yourjourney. Driven by a 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 engine and two twin-scroll turbines Iocated between the cylinder banks so the ex- haust gases are only a short distance from the turboohargers — for faster responsiveness. The completely separate supply of exhaust output gases to the turbine runners avoids the Ioad change disadvantages associated with a V8 and ensures a high torque of 620Nm even at Iow engine speeds. The power output: 338kW (460hp]. The engine management was specially modiﬁed for the GT8 models — for a perceptible, direct targeting of the engine and an even faster build up of engine torque, you can even hear the modiﬁcations in the core engine sound. Apropos sound: in the SPORT PLUS mode the Sports exhaust System delivers an almost racing sport sound that distinguishes it from the other Panamera models.
The Chassis of the Panamera GT8 models is ﬁtted with adaptive air suspension including Porsche Active Suspension Management [PASML an electric adjustment of the damping force. At the Normal Level of air suspension the body is already around ‘lOmm lower than other Panamera models and the damping has been designed to be ﬁrmer. In the SPORT PLUS mode the Low Level is engaged automatically: a further 10mm lower. At the same time by reducing the air volume of the air suspension a ﬁrmer spring rate is adjusted. The manually controlled High Level makes it possible to raise the car around 30mm, in order to minimise the danger of damaging the underside when driving into a garage, for example. Also speciﬁc to GT8: the anti-roll bar on the rear axle has been designed to further reduce body movement on corners, resulting in an even sportier driving experience. The brakes behind the matt black painted 20—inch Panamera Design wheels have red six-piston aluminium monobloc ﬁxed brake calipers at the front and four—piston aluminium monobloc ﬁxed brake calipers at the rear. The brake discs are internally vented and cross-drilled.
