A powerful appearance and extensive equipment
Design and equipment
The new GTS models underline their unique position as sports cars in the luxury saloon category with the especially sporty design their design and equipment. The Panamera GTS and Panamera GTS Sport Turismo are 5,053 millimetres long, 1,417 millimetres tall and 1,937 millimetres wide. A large wheelbase of 2,950 millimetres extends between the body’s short overhangs. Both models are equipped as standard with 20-inch Panamera Design wheels, painted in black with a silk gloss finish.
Standard Sport Design package with black highlights
At the front, the GTS models differ from the rest of the Panamera models due their new Sport Design front apron with a black spoiler lip. As standard, LED headlights, including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), four-point daytime running lights, cornering lights, headlight cleaning system and dynamic headlight range control ensure ideal visibility at night. Darkened LED matrix headlights including PDLS Plus with 84 individually activatable LEDs are available as an option. Sport Design side skirts with black paint finish visually lower the two GTS models, emphasising their performance-driven design. The side window strips are painted in high-gloss black as standard and the front doors feature GTS lettering. Black is also the dominant colour at the rear, where the Sport Design rear apron, “PORSCHE” logo and model designation all feature the corresponding paint finish. The two twin tailpipes in the standard sports exhaust system are also black. The three-dimensional tail lights with LED technology, integrated four-point brake lights and lighting strip feature the distinctive GTS dark tint. The retractable rear spoiler is integrated seamlessly into the sports saloon’s electric tailgate, which is fitted as standard. On the new Panamera GTS, the wing splits when extended to create a larger surface area. This also increases the downforce on the rear axle at higher speeds.
Inside, the Panamera combines a high standard of comfort, the sportiness typical for Porsche and an avant-garde design with a high degree of variability. The two GTS models also feature particularly sporty highlights and offer an extended range of standard equipment. The adaptive, electric 18-way sports seats with memory package offer both the driver and front passenger good side support and plenty of comfort. The centre seat panels come in Alcantara, which also covers the armrests on the doors, the sun visors, the headliner, and the A, B and C pillars. The standard equipment also includes a heated multifunction sports steering wheel with Alcantara trim, gear-change paddles, and the mode switch for the Sport Chrono Package. GTS logos can be found on the door entry sills, rev counter and head restraints. The rev counter dial is also optionally available in Carmine Red or Crayon.
The interior can be further enhanced with the GTS interior package. This includes seat belts, embroidered lettering on the head restraints, and also decorative stitching on the seats and floor mats in the contrasting colours Carmine Red or Crayon.
Porsche Advanced Cockpit with standard online connectivity
One general feature found in the second-generation Porsche Panamera is the digital display and operating concept – the standard Porsche Advanced Cockpit with touch-sensitive panels and customisable displays. Two seven-inch screens form the interactive cockpit. A 12.3-inch touchscreen in the centre console acts as the central operating and display element in the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system including online navigation. The Infotainment system is easy and intuitive to use and can be adapted to suit personal tastes. Thanks to the pre-defined tiles, drivers have a quick and easy way to create their own home screen full of their preferred functions, such as their favourite radio stations, sat-nav destinations, telephone numbers or the sports exhaust activation function. An information widget can be added to the right-hand side of the full HD screen, providing users with access to other functions in the PCM. For instance, the interactive area in the middle of the screen can be used to display the sat-nav, while the right-hand side is used for the phone function. Up to six individual profiles can be configured. As well as a number of interior settings, these profiles contain preferred configurations for lights, driving programmes and assistance systems.
Users can connect their mobile phones or smartphones with the Connect Plus module. The Panamera is equipped with an LTE phone module and SIM card reader. Thanks to the built-in SIM card, every Panamera can stay online all the time as standard if wished. Real-time traffic information is available for quick and reliable navigation, ensuring a speedy assessment of the current traffic situation and dynamic route adjustment. A number of other Porsche Connect services are also available. For an in-depth overview of the Connect services available in each country and vehicles, please see www.porsche.com/connect.
