But what happens when you want a little extra performance—and pizzazz—but don't want the unbridled speed of the Panamera Turbo? Enter the 2019 Panamera GTS. Offering 13 extra ponies and 73 added lb.-ft. of torque over its predecessor, the new GTS has plenty of power on tap. The 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 generates 453 horsepower and 457 lb.-ft. of torque, good for an invigorating sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds. Keep your foot on the pedal, and the GTS completes the quarter mile in 12.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 181 mph. Standard on the GTS is Porsche's all-wheel-drive system, which ensures plenty of traction, whether you're on the track or driving to the slopes. The GTS also comes standard with Porsche's Sport Chrono Package, which puts four driving modes and a Sport Response button on the steering wheel for quick access when you need a power boost. From the outside, the Panamera GTS is easily recognizable. Up front, the GTS gets a new front fascia with a black spoiler lip, framed by a smokier LED assembly. From the side, the GTS receives special badging on the doors, gloss-black side air vents and bold 20-inch blacked-out rims with red brake calipers. In back, find high-gloss black exhaust pipes and a trick adaptive rear spoiler that adjusts up and down and lengthwise for greater rear downforce at high speeds. Inside, the car surprises with a state-of-the-art first-class interior that provides the perfect blend of sport and comfort. Adaptive 18-way sport seats lined in Alcantara make it easy to find your sweet spot. The suedelike material also covers the armrests, headliner and multifunction sports steering wheel. A centrally located 12.3-inch high-resolution touch screen puts all vehicle settings and infotainment options right at your fingertips, while the gauge cluster's two 7-inch displays help keep the driver's eyes on critical vehicle functions. Also available is Porsche's InnoDrive system, a unique electronic co-pilot that automatically calculates the ideal braking and acceleration points using radar and video data in conjunction with the navigation system's mapping information.
