The German sports car manufacturer Porsche has always been known for innovation in design. The company has moved with the times but remained true to its traditions, and the rear engined Porsche 911 is the perfect testament to that.
Porsche has not rested on its laurels and has looked at breaking into new markets over the last 10 – 15 years, with the development of the 4×4 SUV Porsche Cayenne and the more recent Panamera luxury four door saloon.
These two vehicles have been a real success story for Porsche, which has led them to develop and launch the third generation of the Cayenne and now in 2012 launch the new Panamera GTS 2, which is officially Porsche’s fastest four-door saloon car.
This new Panamera GTS 2 is a true Gran Turismo, with the exceptional performance and handling of a four door luxury saloon. It is powered by a 4.8 litre V8 engine, which produces 430bhp, and utilises a seven-speed gearbox that offers a smooth transfer of power to the wheels. The performance is amazing for a four-door saloon, as it can effortlessly achieve 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds, with a phenomenal top speed of 178mph, proving this is a luxury four-seater to be reckoned with.
