    Panamera GTS?

    "Porsche's Panamera lineup is poised to expand as the company is reportedly working on a new diesel variant as well as a high performance GTS.

    Although little is known about the Panamera GTS, it is expected to be positioned above the Panamera Turbo. This means the GTS will likely boast more than 500 horsepower, which should enable it to beat the 4.0 second 0-60 mph time of the Panamera Turbo. The GTS is also expected to ditch the Turbo's heavy air suspension system, in favor of traditional coil springs.

    According to Autocar, Porsche is also considering a diesel-powered Panamera. If such a model were to be built, it would likely adopt a modified version of the Cayenne's 240 bhp 3.0-liter V6 or the Audi A8's 322 bhp 4.2-liter V8."

    Re: Panamera GTS?

    Porsche should grab Audi's V10 Diesel!!! They could call it the GTD and place it just below the Turbo but above the S lol.

    Re: Panamera GTS?

    I wonder if in times of recession a V6 would be not more beneficial to Porsche as to most consumers? Any new information on that launch date? Will it come as 4 wheel drive as well? ThanksSmiley


    Re: Panamera GTS?

     Porsche need two new engines for Panamera and Cayenne:

    - Twin turbo diesel with 300 hp - like the new BMW 3l engines - no V8 or even V10 diesel - to heavy and out of time

    - 3.6l V6 turbo engine with aprox. 360  hp - light weight engine

    Re: Panamera GTS?

    Absolutely right. The Diesel for the EU market and the 3.0 engine for the US market. I doubt 360 hp, too close to 400hp V8. Engine will have 330hp.
