A special feature that highlights the sports car nature is the naturally aspirated engine character of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with a linear unleashing of power. There is no performance plateau, as is common with turbo engines today. The Sport Exhaust System with intensive V8 sound characteristics is a perfect match. The same applies to the Adaptive Air Suspension which is specially designed for the Panamera GTS models to be more sporty by being 10mm (0.39 in.) lower.
On the Panamera GTS and Turbo S, the adaptive rear spoiler splits in two after extending and becomes wider – ensuring an efficient reduction in lift at the rear axle.
The Panamera GTS Sport Turismo is equipped with the adaptive roof spoiler.
In addition, the lower section of the Sport Design front and rear fascias and the 20-inch Panamera Design wheels are finished in Satin Black. The Exclusive Design taillights and the characteristic light strip are also clear. Upon request, LED Headlights in Black with Matrix Design including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus can also be added.
'GTS' logos on the front doors round off the overall sporty image.
Another special feature of the Panamera GTS models: the optional interior packages in two contrasting colors. This includes stitching on the dashboard, the door panels, the seats, the armrest in the center console and the floor mats finished with stitching in Carmine Red or Chalk. The headrests of the four seats with the 'GTS' logo are stitched in the same color. To match: the seat belts are in Carmine Red or Chalk.
The special dynamic of the Panamera GTS models is clear from the first glance – in particular thanks to use of the black contrasting color. Elements, such as the side window trims, the side air outlets, the logos on the rear end and the tailpipes of the Sport Exhaust System, are finished in High Gloss Black.
When a camera located inside the rear-view mirror detects the headlights of an oncoming vehicle, the high beams are automatically turned off at a distance of approximately 2,600 feet. If the taillights of a vehicle traveling in front are detected, the high beam is then turned off at a distance of approximately 1,300 feet.
The interior of the Panamera GTS models also reveals their love of sport. The combination of black leather with Race-Tex, Adaptive Sport Seats with 'GTS' logos on the headrests, as well as interior trim and door-sill guards made of Black Brushed Aluminum are a clear demonstration of this. Even the Steering Wheel rim of the GT Sport steering wheel and the roof lining are finished with Race-Tex.

The Head-Up Display is part of the standard equipment for the Panamera Turbo S and Turbo S E-Hybrid models and is available on request for all other Panamera models. It offers high-quality and full-color projection of relevant driving information into the driver's field of view. With projection technology, the information is perceived to appear 7.5 ft. in front of the driver. The display position can be adjusted to the driver's height and position in PCM. The driver is less distracted and can pay more attention to the road. Visualized information includes driving speed, engine speed, incoming calls and navigation. Road signs, hazard warnings and Sport Chrono information can also be displayed, depending on the vehicle specification. Displayed content can be individually customized.
Active steering of the rear wheels for increased agility, a reduced turning circle at low speeds, and improved driving stability at high speeds. The rear wheels are turned in the same direction as the steering input at the front axle or in the opposite direction, depending on speed.

Radar- and video-based technology that monitors and automatically regulates the distance from the vehicle in front as required even down to a halt by means of the stop-and-go function (usable at 19+ mph).
