New Porsche Panamera GTS 2019: prices, specification and release date

454bhp Porsche Panamera GTS joins the range as a sporty, driver-focused option

This is the new 2019 Porsche Panamera GTS, the latest and sportiest addition to the expansive Porsche Panamera hatchback and Sport Turismo estate range. Much like its discontinued predecessor and other GTS models in the Porsche stable, the new car combines sporty styling, sharper handling and more immediate performance to set itself apart from its relatively softer-edged siblings.

The Panamera GTS is powered by the same four-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine used in non-hybrid Panamera models, with power increased to 454bhp. That's up from the standard car’s 325bhp and the 434bhp of the Panamera 4S, but below that of the E-Hybrid (456bhp), Turbo (542bhp) and Turbo S E-Hybrid (671bhp).

Acceleration from 0-62mph takes just 4.1 seconds, with a top speed of around 180mph for both body styles. All GTS models come with four-wheel drive and an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox as standard.

Carbuyer's best fast estates to buy now

Porsche claims the standard Panamera GTS returns 27.4mpg with CO2 emissions of 235g/km, with the Sport Turismo version managing 26.6mpg and 242g/km.

UK pricing has yet to be officially announced, but European prices suggest the GTS should slot into the middle of the current Panamera line-up, with a starting price of around £120,000.

Design & specification

To set the GTS apart from other Panamera models, Porsche has fitted it with a Sport Design package as standard. This adds black trim across the car’s exterior, along with standard 20-inch black wheels. The sporty theme continues inside, with extended Alcantara and anodised aluminium trim plus a heated Alcantara sports steering wheel as standard. An optional GTS pack brings unique rev-counter colour options and contrasting GTS logos and stitching.

All versions feature the Porsche Advanced Cockpit digital display in place of traditional dials, along with a configurable full-colour head-up display. A range of driver-assistance systems feature, including adaptive cruise control and a reversing camera.

Adaptive air suspension also comes as standard, which complements the car’s 10mm lower ride height and sportier PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) calibration. A range of driving modes ensure the new Panamera GTS can be set up for a motorway cruise or B-road blast as appropriate.
