The heart of the matter is the V8 with 460 hp and 620 Nm of torque.

Porsche's versatile GTS designation returns to the Panamera for 2019 as the sixth trim level in the hierarchy, joining the Panamera, Panamera 4, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, 4S, Panamera Turbo, and the Turbo S E-Hybrid.

Other standard goodies include the Sport Chrono package, a Sport Exhaust system, the Sport Design package with lots of black bits and a set of black 20-inch wheels. It accelerates to 100 km/h from a standstill in a claimed 4.1 seconds.

Along with the uprated powertrain, the GTS gains the full gamut of Porsche chassis systems. But as it's the sportier model, the suspension and chassis have been tweaked and the brakes enlarged (390mm up front and 365mm at the rear) to keep those keen on scrubbing sidewalls happy.

Compared to the previous GTS, this one's basic equipment package has been significantly upgraded. This brings extra black detailing up front and at the rear, plus a variety of darker elements across the body.

Of course, the performance changes extend beyond the engine compartment as the Panamera GTS comes standard with an adaptive air suspension and a 10mm reduced ride height. The interior features hallmark elements of black Alcantara and anodised aluminium.

The insides get a heated multifunction Sport steering wheel with paddles, black Alcantara fabric and red contrast stitching.

The GTS models offer all the same innovations as the second-generation Panamera range. These include the digital Porsche Advanced Cockpit, assist systems such as Porsche InnoDrive including adaptive cruise control, and the optional rear-axle steering. The Panamera GTS will also be available with an all-new head-up display. Porsche's first road-approved sports vehicle, the 904 Carrera GTS, was launched in 1963, bringing racing tech to the streets. This was followed by the 924 GTS and 928 GTS, which cultivated the concept throughout the 1980s and 90s. In 2007, the GTS badge was revived with the 911 Carrera GTS.

The Porsche Panamera lineup is growing as the company has taken the wraps off the 2019 Panamera GTS.

Porsche's order books are open now for both the GTS and GTS Sport Turismo, with prices starting at $129,350 for the former and $135,550 for the latter.

You'll be doing 292km/h flat out in the Panamera GTS, and 289km/h in the Sport Turismo GTS.
