So far, the Porsche Panamera GTS was driven in Europe in a track environment, but also on the North American roads as well and here is how it did. The five-door hatchback Panamera was introduced for the first time back in 2010, but the Panamera GTS is something special. Its suspension lowers the ride by 10 mm and it also comes as standard with air suspension and Porsche Active Stability Management. Under the hood it hides a naturally aspirated V8 engine capable of developing 430 horsepower and 384 lb. ft. of torque. Despite the power it does not feel overpowered.
To transfer the output to the wheels, the new Porsche Panamera GTS is fitted with PDK 7-speed transmission. there is no way of telling whether it is a range-wide software update for 2013 or whether the tuning is specific to GTS, but this might actually be the best dual-clutch transmission on the market at the moment. Not long ago, the German carmaker modified the keys to appear like miniaturized silhouettes of your car. Now, these keys can match the color of the car you are driving. This feature will cost you another $335. The configuration of the model is very useful.
The engineers have offered two buttons for the power close. One of them will only close it and the other one will lock the whole car. This is the perfect replacement for the start / stop function without using reprogramming and fuse-pulling. With a simple push the exhaust will be on and the 4.8-liter V8 engine will just make the best sound. This is all the specialists have discovered while driving the Porsche Panamera GTS on the North American roads. Maybe the carmaker is preparing something more, but we will know when that time comes.
