Stuttgart's sportiest Gran Turismo is leaving the pits: the Panamera GTS. The clue is in the name. At Porsche, GTS stands for Gran Turismo Sport, promising extraordinary Porsche performance ever since the legendary 904 Carrera GTS back in 1963. - European Car Magazine
Modified Jaguar XFR vs. BMW M5
It's a Battle of Sports Sedans: our Jaguar XFR+ project car goes
head-to-head with a BMW M5. We wanted to create a super sedan capable of
taking on the best in the segment, while also showcasing aftermarket tuning
parts from Vorsteiner and GSR Autosport.
The Jag's upgrades include Vorsteiner carbon fiber body kit and wheels,
Eibach springs, GSR coilover adapters, Mina Gallery Supercharger pulley, GSR 3" stainless steel Exhaust and intake system.
Will this modified Jaguar XFR have what it takes to beat the mighty but
stock BMW M5? For the full story, see the November 2013 issue of european

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo
Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo, concept. Paris, 27.09.12
Top speed - 130km/h, from 0 to 100 km/h --6.0sek, fuel consumption -
Range by electric mode - 30 km, the charging time - 2.5h
Press inform:The body concept of the Panamera Sport Turismo is an outlook
on a possible Porsche sports car of tomorrow: The overhangs are short, and
the boot lid is large -- both sporty and functional. The concept car
combines the dimensions of a premium vehicle with the interior comfort of
the luxury class. The Sport Turismo is 1,990 mm wide, a low 1,401 mm in
height and 4,950 mm long. Its direction indicators and sidelights are
integrated in C-shaped lighting units -- known as C-Blades -- mounted in
the large air inlets at the front end. Together with four-point LED
headlights in an innovative design, they define the front end appearance of
the concept car.
The drive technology of the Panamera Sport Turismo completes the next
development step towards the plug-in hybrid, symbolised by the "e-hybrid"
badge on the front wings. The car's new ability to be charged from the
electrical power grid has been combined with even higher performance
components. The concept vehicle with its 416 hp (306 kW) of peak system
power is designed to be driven in pure electric mode up to a speed of 130
km/h and can cover distances of over 30 km. The Sport Turismo also exhibits
impressive fuel economy per the NEDC standard; its combined fuel
consumption is less than 3.5 litres per 100 km, while CO2 emissions are
under 82 g/km.
The drive system of the Panamera Sport Turismo is an advanced development
of the parallel full hybrid that Porsche already implements today in the
Panamera S Hybrid and Cayenne S Hybrid. The new electric motor produces
about 70 kW (95 hp), which is around twice as much as in today's Porsche
hybrid drive, while the three-litre V6 supercharged engine still produces
245 kW (333 hp) here. In their interplay, they accelerate the concept car
from zero to 100 km/h in less than six seconds.
The electric power pack of the Sport Turismo e-hybrid consists of a
lithium-ion battery whose performance is several times that of the
nickel-hydride battery currently used in production, although it has
practically the same dimensions. Its 9.4 Kilowatt-hours of energy storage
capacity and high peak power enable faster acceleration, longer electric driving
range and higher speeds when driving without the internal combustion
engine.As a plug-in hybrid, the fluid-cooled lithium-ion battery is not
only charged while driving; it can also be externally charged within 2.5
hours (depending on the power supply) via a charging interface on the
vehicle. Porsche systematically thought through all aspects of the concept
car's plug-in system; it utilises a universal charger (AC) that is
wall-mounted in a home garage and has a standardised charging plug.
The interior of the Sport Turismo is a forward-looking interpretation of
purist sports car thinking: as little as possible and as much as necessary.
Instead of classic instruments, a large central TFT colour display is
positioned in front of the driver; it is used to call up and display any
vehicle information as needed -- from the tachometer to driving data or
navigation. Two monitors, one to the left and one to the right of this
display, show images from the "exterior mirror" cameras. Two additional
displays in tube form provide informa- tion on the hybrid-specific driving
states, e.g. pure electric driving, as well as other functions.
2012 Porsche Panamera GTS reveal promo (long ver)
Porsche has unveiled the new 2012 Panamera GTS.
A Grand Turismo Sport variant of the Panamera, the Panamera GTS comes with
a modified 4.8 liter, naturally-aspirated V8 with an output of 430 PS (316
kW / 424 hp) and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque.
Transmission is the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmitting
power to the all-wheel drive system (PTM). The GTS features the Sport
Chrono package as standard which helps that power flow without
interruption. 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 tauter damping
configuration for a sportier ride from this GTS. Wheels are 19-inch rims
with tires sized 225/45/R19 at the front and 285/40/R19 at the back.
The Panamera GTS goes on sale in February 2012 with prices starting at
€116,716 in Germany.

Porsche Panamera GTS - Testfahrt
Zwei Buchstaben unterscheiden einen "S" von einem "GTS". Dezent sind auch
die anderen Unterschiede: 30 PS mehr, bessere Bremsen, sportlicheres
Fahrwerk. Weniger dezent ist der Preis von 117.000 Euro.
2013 Panamera GTS tested on track
More power and upgraded brakes, a body lowered by ten millimetres and the
especially sportily tuned chassis with air suspension and PASM are the
major technical modifications that make it the Panamera model capable of
cutting it on the racing circuit -- without sacrificing practicality. The
sportiest of all Panameras also conveys this to occupants and the outside
world by its striking sound. In terms of looks, the new Panamera GTS
signals its independence by distinctive design features in the front-end,
side and rear area as well as black highlights. The interior as well is
rigorously tailored to the sporty personality with sports seats,
SportDesign steering wheel with shift paddles, exclusive GTS leather
interior and Alcantara surfaces.
The power unit in the new Panamera GTS is a modified 4.8-litre naturally
aspirated V8 engine, delivering 430 hp (316 kW) at 6,700 rpm, trumping the
engine in its Panamera S/4S sister models by 30 hp (22 kW). The maximum
torque also increased by comparison, from 500 Nm to 520 Nm. The way in
which at the push of a button the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK)
transmits the engine output to the all-wheel drive (PTM) -- thanks to the
Sport Chrono package featured as standard without interruption to the power
flow -- is especially dynamic. This collaboration enables the Panamera GTS
to sprint to 100 km/h in under 4.5 seconds, accelerating on to its top
speed of 288 km/h. With NEDC fuel consumption of 10.9 l/100 km -- only 10.7
l/100 km with low-friction tyres -- the Panamera GTS remains as much of an
efficiency role model in its milieu as all Porsche models.
The standard values for sprint and top speed don't do full justice to the
new Panamera GTS's sporty characteristics. Its chassis in particular makes
it fit for the racing circuit: The adaptive air suspension and Porsche
Active Suspension Management (PASM) featured as standard connect the
chassis and body, constantly adapting to the driving challenges by
regulating levelling settings, adjusting height, adjusting the spring rate
and electrically adjusting the damping system. The damping is designed to
be tauter, which helps agility and further reinforces the new Gran
Turismo's sporty personality. Five millimetre thick wheel spacers between
the wheel and the wheel carriers increase the rear axle track width, giving
the Panamera an even more stable ride. The required grip is provided by
255/45 size 19-inch tyres on the front axle and 285/40 on the rear axle.
Deceleration on the sporty Panamera is provided by the superlative braking
system of the Panamera turbo. The
Panamera GTS is being launched in February 2012 with a price tag of 116.716
