Both new models will be powered by a four-liter V8 engine capable of developing 460 horsepower and a maximum torque of 620 Nm.

Adaptive air suspension comes as standard but has been dropped by 10mm over standard cars - further improving an incredible stance. The chassis in the two GTS models have also been lowered by 10millimetres, while the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) function has been adapted for lateral dynamics. Uprated brakes measuring 390 mm up front and 365 mm at the rear are included.

When compared to the predecessor, the new Panamera GTS models' basic equipment package has been significantly upgraded in a number of areas. Like other Panameras, the GTS models can be specced with rear-wheel steering, too. This brings extra black detailing up front and at the rear, plus a variety of darker elements across the body. The cabin gets Alcantara treatment combined with anodised aluminium inserts.

Standard features include a heated sports steering wheel (with gearshift paddles and more Alcantara trim) as well as the brand's Connect Plus module. You can have the interior GTS-ified as well, with custom tachometers, designer seams, and Carmine Red or Chalk GTS Logos.

The GTS models offer all the same innovations as the second-generation Panamera range.

The Panamera GTS is available to order now through South African dealers, with first deliveries taking place early next year, although no pricing has been officially announced as yet. As all such features, this one will send to the interior of the windscreen relevant information, as requested by the driver. Porsche's first road-approved sports vehicle, the 904 Carrera GTS, was launched all the way back in 1963, bringing racing technology to the streets.

Now you'll be able to get your sport on with the Sport Turismo GTS as well. This was followed by the 924 GTS and 928 GTS in the 1980s and 90s.

Porsche has revealed the Panamera and Panamera Sport Turismo GTS, a new sub-Turbo variants for its four- and five-door executive express.

In the United Kingdom, pricing starts at £105,963 for the Panamera GTS and £108,110 for the Panamera GTS Sports Turismo (including VAT).
