2020 Porsche Panamera GTS Twin-Turbo V-8 Engine, Specs, & Changes – Porsche’s functional GTS designation returns to the Panamera for 2019 as the 6th trim level in the hierarchy, joining the Panamera, Panamera 4, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, 4S, Panamera Turbo, and the Turbo S E-Hybrid. For the first time, the GTS also can be possessed as a Sports Turismo wagon, but in contrast to the other Panamera trim ranges, the GTS is not provided as an extended-wheelbase Executive sedan.
2020 Porsche Panamera GTS Twin-Turbo V-8 Engine
In contrast to the 4S employs a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6, the GTS receives the twin-turbo 4.-liter V-8, just like the Turbo models. The GTS V-8’s 455 horsepower, however, is much closer to the output of the V-6 (440 horses in the 4S) than it is to the 550 ponies from the Turbo’s V-8. In the same way, the GTS torque figure of 457 lb-ft, when 52 lb-ft above that of the 4S, is 110 lb-ft shy of the Turbo.
According to Porsche’s factory-stated zero-to-60-mph occasions, the GTS at 3.9 seconds shaves .1 second compared to the 4S with its optionally available launch control (which is standard on the GTS), but the GTS is .5 second right behind the Turbo. All of those effects probably include an honest bit of sandbagging on Porsche’s part, however, considering that we accomplished a 3.6-second zero-to-60-mph time with a 4S and 3.0 seconds with a Turbo. Given sufficient wide-open road-such as, say, an unhindered autobahn-the GTS can achieve 181 mph (179 for the Sports Turismo), Porsche claims, just outpacing the 4S at 179 mph but slipping shortly of the Turbo’s 190 mph.
The GTS’s 4.0-liter V-8 buddies to an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Air springs and adaptive dampers (Porsche Adaptive Suspension Administration, or PASM) are standard but feature a custom calibration for the GTS and a .4-inch-lower ride size. Compared with individuals in the 4S, the GTS brake rotors are larger, at 15.4 inches in front and 14.4 inches at the rear. The GTS also arrives standard with a Sports Exhaust system and the Sports Chrono package. The GTS exterior features Porsche’s Sports Design package with black exterior trim, 20-inch Panamera Design wheels, and black exhaust retailers. The interior is swathed in black microsuede (which includes the warmed sports steering wheel) with aluminum features. An optionally available GTS Interior package brings GTS graphics on the front seatbacks, compare stitches, and a red- or white-experienced tachometer.
