The eight-cylinder engine's peak outputs best those of its forebear by some 15 kW and 100 N.m, allowing both the Panamera GTS and the Panamera GTS Sport Turismo to hit 100 km/h from standstill in a claimed 4,1 seconds (the Sport Chrono package ships standard).

Powered by the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, the GTS twins now put out 460bhp of power and a maximum twisting force of 620Nm.

Adaptive air suspension with Porsche's Active Suspension Management system is standard, with the GTS models riding 10mm lower than regular ones. The rated top speeds for the GTS and GTS Sport Turismo are 292 km/h and 289 km/h respectively. A spry 4.1 seconds to 100 km/h will ensure that all the stuff you have packed in the back rearranges itself. 20-inch Panamera Design wheels are standard. The cabin gets Alcantara treatment combined with anodised aluminium inserts.

Like the GTS models of old, it's pretty much business as usual: bits and bobs from across the range and plenty of options all thrown in with the addition of an alcantara steering wheel and lots of red stitching to keep people who like driving happy. This brings extra black detailing up front and at the rear, plus a variety of darker elements across the body.

For the first time in a Panamera, a head-up display is also offered. The display can be configured by the driver and projects all relevant information directly into their direct line of sight in full colour.

You'll be able to quickly identify the new GTS models on the road since they are fitted as standard with the Sport Design package.

Porsche's order books are open now for both the GTS and GTS Sport Turismo, with prices starting at $129,350 for the former and $135,550 for the latter. This was followed by the 924 GTS and 928 GTS, which cultivated the concept throughout the 1980s and 90s. In Germany, the Panamera GTS is available from Euro 138,493 including Value-Added Tax and country-specific equipment; the Panamera GTS Sport Turismo is available from Euro 141,349. In 2007, the GTS badge was revived with the 911 Carrera GTS. The first generation of the Panamera GTS followed in 2011, initially available as a sports saloon only.
