Porsche Panamera GTS
Porsche's driver-focused Panamera GTS goes on sale in the UK in February 2012.
Offering 30bhp more power than standard Porsche Panamera S and 4S models the Panamera GTS is tuned to provide a more sporting driving experience, sharing many of the Panamera Turbo's additional performance features.
Aimed towards Porsche 911 buyers who require a family car, the GTS uses the brand's seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox and a 4.8-litre V8 engine that produces 424bhp. The four-seater GTS can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and go on to reach a top speed of 179mph.
Despite such high performance the GTS is impressively fuel efficient, returning 25.9mpg and 256g/km of CO2.

Adjustable, lowered air suspension provides a comfortable but performance orientated ride and the 19-inch Panamera Turbo wheels combine with uprated Turbo brakes to complement the high-performance looks.
Fitted with the Sport Chrono packages as standard, the GTS comes with three driving modes, Normal, Sport and Sport Plus.
Inside, the Panamera GTS boasts a leather and Alcantara interior, available in five different colours.
