The Porsche Panamera lineup is growing as the company has taken the wraps off the 2019 Panamera GTS.
Starting under the hood, the GTS has a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 453 hp (338 kW / 460 PS) and 457 lb-ft (620 Nm) of torque – 19 hp (15 kW / 20 PS) and 73 lb-ft (100 Nm) more than its predecessor. The engine is connected to an eight-speed PDK transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enables the Panamera GTS and Panamera GTS Sport Turismo to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.1 seconds. Given enough room, the model will eventually hit a top speed of up to 181 mph (292 km/h).
Of course, the performance changes extend beyond the engine compartment as the Panamera GTS comes standard with an adaptive air suspension and a 10mm reduced ride height. Other notable changes include a retuned Porsche Active Suspension Management system and a beefier braking system with larger discs that measure 15.3 inches (390 mm) up front and 14.3 inches (365 mm) out back.
The sportier performance is reflected in the car’s styling as the GTS features a Sport Design package with black accents. The car also has black GTS badges and 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels.
The modest changes continue in the cabin as the drivers will find black Alcantara upholstery and anodized aluminum accents. Other changes include a standard Sport Chrono package and an Alcantara-wrapped heated sport steering wheel.
Speaking of the interior, Porsche will offer an Interior GTS package which adds Carmine Red or Crayon accents. The Panamera GTS will also be available with an all-new head-up display. Porsche didn’t say much about the system, but noted the HUD is new to the Panamera range and features a full color display.
The Panamera GTS and Panamera GTS Sport Turismo are currently available to order and U.S. pricing starts at $128,300 and $134,500. Both prices exclude a $1,050 destination and processing fee and the models are slated to arrive at dealerships in the second half of 2019.
In the UK, pricing starts at £105,963 for the Panamera GTS and £108,110 for the Panamera GTS Sports Turismo (including VAT). Likewise, Germans can expect to pay €138,493 and €141,349.
