Porsche designed the Panamera GTS to have a performance edge over the 4S version, making it suitable for track days as well as executive commuting. Porsche managed to eke more power out of the engine and includes some performance features standard for the GTS.
The naturally aspirated direct-injection 4.8-liter V-8 is tweaked for more power than the Panamera 4S. It creates 430 horsepower, 30 more than the other cars. And 383 pound-feet of torque helps the Panamera GTS hit 62 mph in less than 4.5 seconds.
