Filmed at the Ascari circuit in Spain, former rally legend and senior test driver for Porsche, Walter Röhrl took a brand-new Panamera GTS out for a hot lap. Porsche has released a bunch of new GTS materials for one last marketing push as the Panamera GTS currently launches in German.

If you'll recall, the Grand Turismo Sport variant of the Panamera comes with a modified 4.8-liter, naturally-aspirated V8 with 430 PS (316 kW / 424 hp) and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque. Power is transmitted via the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmission down to the all-wheel drive system.

The GTS features the Sport Chrono package as standard which engages engine and chassis dynamics at a more responsive and sportier level. This makes the Panamera GTS sprint to 100 km/h in under 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 288 km/h (179 mph). Fuel consumption is 10.9 liters/100 km - 10.7 with low roll-resistance tires.

Also standard on the Panamera GTS is the adaptive air suspension and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with a more responsive damping configuration for a sportier ride. Wheels are 19-inch rims with tires sized 225/45/R19 at the front and 285/40/R19 at the back.

The Panamera GTS is currently on sale in Germany with a startig price of €116,716.
