Current Porsche Panamera GTS Sport Turismo – Ultimate Guide

The Panamera GTS Sport Turismo costs only $6,900 more than the sedan variant in base trim. With the same powertrain and better practicality, this performance wagon may just be the most significant direct threat to the Panamera GTS sedan.

The extra boot space, up to 49 cubic feet, with the rear seats folded down, makes the Panamera GTS Sport Turismo perfectly suited for a weekend trip to the shopping mall. However, the twin-turbocharged V8, packed within the car’s frame, means that it offers so much more than just hauling cargo. Like the Panamera GTS sedan, the powerplant churns out a meaty 473 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. It’s enough oomph to get the Sport Turismo to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds (with the optional Sport Chrono package installed).

That is proper sports car performance, but the Panamera GTS wagon is more than straight-line speed. The handling is whip-sharp, and the big car tucks around corners with impressive grip levels. The optional rear-axle steering is a bonus, making the car feel even more nimble. Overall, the Panamera GTS Sport Turismo strikes a sweet balance between performance, comfort and practicality.

New Panamera GTS and Panamera GTS Sport Turismo Make World Premiere

453 horsepower twin-turbo V8, sport suspension and wide array of equipment

Atlanta, Georgia. Porsche today announced the forthcoming addition of two sporty models to its Panamera range. The new Porsche Panamera GTS and Porsche Panamera GTS Sport Turismo models add new breadth to the lineup for customers seeking a sportier driving experience positioned between the Panamera 4S and Panamera Turbo variants.

A four-liter twin-turbo V8 engine generates peak output of 453 horsepower from 6,000 to 6,500 RPM and peak torque of 457 lb.-ft. from 1,800 to 4,500 RPM. As compared to the previous Panamera GTS with a naturally aspirated 4.8-liter V8, the current engine offers an increase of 13 horsepower and an additional 73 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine, which sends power to all four wheels through an eight-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission via the standard Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive system, allows both the Porsche Panamera GTS and Porsche Panamera GTS Sport Turismo models to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.9 seconds. The former reaches a top track speed of 181 mph, or 179 mph for the latter.

As is typical with any Porsche “GTS” model, the standard equipment list and chassis setup are oriented with enthusiastic driving in mind. The chassis now sits 0.39 inches (10 millimeters) lower than other Panamera models. The Porsche Adaptive Suspension Management (PASM) dampers, which are included as part of the standard Air Suspension, are recalibrated for these models. Large brakes (390 millimeters in diameter at the front, 365 millimeters in diameter at the rear) provide exceptional stopping power.

Other standard equipment highlights include the Sport Chrono package, a Sport Exhaust system including tailpipes in black, the Sport Design package with black exterior elements, and black 20-inch Panamera Design wheels. Matching the aggressive exterior aesthetic, black Alcantara ® and anodized aluminum lends an athletic look to the interior. A heated multifunction sport steering wheel in Alcantara trim and the Connect Plus module for a wide range of digital services are also standard. With the optional GTS Interior package, drivers can contrast elements of the interior including stitching, GTS logos, and the tachometer in either Carmine Red or Chalk. In conjunction with the new model announcement, Porsche also announced that an optional head-up display with multiple configurations will become available for ordering on all models in the Panamera line-up.

A first for the Panamera: head-up display with many configuration options
The GTS models offer all the same innovations as the second-generation Panamera range. These include the digital Porsche Advanced Cockpit, optional assist systems such as Porsche InnoDrive including adaptive cruise control, and optional rear axle steering. The GTS also offers a highlight that is new to the entire Panamera range – the head-up display. The display can be configured by the driver and projects relevant information directly into their direct line of sight in color.

Even better for day-to-day driving: the first ever Panamera GTS Sport Turismo
As is tradition at Porsche, GTS derives from Gran Turismo Sport and several historical Porsche models. Porsche’s first road-approved sports car, the 904 Carrera GTS, was launched in 1963. This was followed by the 924 GTS and 928 GTS models, which cultivated the concept throughout the 1980s and 1990s. In 2007, the GTS nomenclature celebrated its revival with the Carrera GTS. The first generation of the Panamera GTS followed in 2011. Now, the new Panamera GTS is available in both sedan and Sport Turismo body styles. With a large lift gate, low loading edge, increased cargo capacity, and 4+1 seating configuration, the new GTS variant is the perfect combination of everyday practicality and outstanding performance.

The new Panamera GTS models are available to order now. In the United States, the Panamera GTS carries a starting MSRP of $128,300; the Panamera GTS Sport Turismo is available with a starting MSRP of $134,500. Both prices exclude $1,050 for delivery, processing and handling and are expected to arrive in U.S. dealerships in the second half of 2019.
