Porsche Panamera GTS

Essentially a four-door Porsche 911 Carrera, the Panamera has extra practicality with every bit as much power and spirit as a the two-door cousin.  If you’re married and own a 911, then the chances are you’ll appreciate the extra seats that the Panamera provides once the children start coming.  The Panamera models feature an exquisite and well thought out interior that has plenty of comfort and luxury with the addition of being able to carry four occupants in comfort.  Even taller passengers will find plenty of headroom, and good space for the legs to feel comfortable.

One of the great additions to having all the Porsche performance is that you can also fold down the rear seats in a split-fold formation in order to carry more luggage.  If it ends up with you leaving the kids at home, then the luggage space turns the Porsche Panamera into the ultimate GT for you and your wife – or you and your husband, of course.

Porsche Panamera GTS Interior

Porsche Panamera GTS Interior

Porsche have provided the new Porsche Panamera GTS with a range of nice interior trims and colours to choose from, and the various woods, aluminium or carbon finishings that you can choose do create a classy appearance.  Combine your individual flair in the interior with the style of exterior colour and trim, and you have a Porsche Panamera GTS just made for you.  There are a number of really nice luxury items available for the Porsche Panamera GTS, and these include things like: the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system, Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment Plus, a telephone module and mobile phone preparation feature, a BOSE Surround Sound-System or even the high-end Burmester High-End Surround Sound System.

Porsche has kept pace with modern safety technology.  Park assist uses six sensors at the front and four sensors at the rear to alert the driver via warning tones to what obstacles have been detected.  These warning tones increase in rapidity as the obstacle is approached.  Along with the audible warning, there is a visual display on the PCM central screen in the middle of the dash.  Surround View is an optional extra and is a system with three more high-resolution cameras – one in the front apron and one in each lower trim of the exterior mirrors.  Cruise control is fitted as standard, and it will be useful when the police are out in force or for when you want to kick back and relax.  The cruise control system operates in the 30 to 240 km/h speed range.  Adaptive cruise control is an optional extra, and it regulates the speed of your vehicle in line with the speed of the vehicle in front using a radar sensor.  Lane Change Assist and Lane Departure Warning are other standard features.

Power for the new Porsche Panamera GTS is in the form of an eight-cylinder 324 kW petrol-fed engine.  The AWD chassis offers amazing grip, and it truly uses the maximum 520 Nm of torque to its fullest potential.  Acceleration is incredibly swift off the mark, with the 0- 100 km/h sprint completed in just 4.2 seconds.  If you think that’s fast, then the acceleration of 3.1 seconds from 80-100 km/h shows just how potent the passing ability of the new Porsche Panamera really is.  A top speed of around 288 km/h is accessible –on the rack, of course.  Driven under usual daily routine, the Panamera GTS can manage a fuel consumption figure of under 11 litres/100 km.  Plant the right foot and this figure will rise quickly, however.

If you love the 911 speed but need a little more practicality, then the Porsche Panamera GTS will be one you need to check out.  It looks great too, and will shake off many other quicks with its powerful engine and commanding AWD set-up.  Other cars in the same league are the Audi RS7 and the BMW M5.
