Being considerably less pricey than the Turbo, and a lot less expensive than the even more expensive Turbo S, the GTS is a choice to consider when you want to give your $110,875 on a Grand Touring Sedan.
Powered by a 4.8-liter naturally aspirated V8, the 2013 Panamera GTS accelerates from 0 to 60 in 4.3 seconds (but experience tells us that in real life it’s going to be a little quicker), and reaches a top speed of 178 mph. The V8 produces a power of 424 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, which are translated to the all-wheel drive via a 7-speed PDK (dual clutch) automatic transmission, with no optional manual one available. The paddles mounted on the steering wheel do their job well, though. The fuel consumption is estimated
Being a Porsche Sedan, the 2013 GTS also offers plenty of luxury and comfort on the inside. It features a mix of leather and Alcantra, multi-adjustable driver’s seat, various electronic wizards, spacious front and rear seats, and others. There are two seats in the rear.
The exterior design also catches the eye, with a sporty, yet highly-luxurious look. Elements from previous models have been maintained, while inducing a more aggressive hue.
The 2013 Porsche Panamera GTS promises to be a great car, and more than worth it, considering it will cost more than 60 grand less in comparison with the Turbo S.
