LA Auto Show highlights - Porsche Panamera GTS
A PDK dual-clutch transmission and four-wheel drive, and the results are some spectacular figures; the GTS can hit 62mph in just 4.5sec and reach 179mph. The fuel economy figure is 25.9mpg, and the car emits 256g/km of CO2. It'll go on sale next February, from £90,409.
The raw figures are certainly impressive, but the idea of using a car this big for track days is a strange one – and if it's 'track bred' and focused, why not make it a manual and only drive the rear wheels? We remain to be convinced.
