Adding performance, power and style, Porsche has unveiled the new Panamera GTS at the LA Auto Show. Already an impressive performer, Porsche ups the ante with a long list of upgrades, ranging from the brakes to the exhaust system, to a standard Sport Chrono Package with launch control. Power has also been increased 30-hp from the 4.8-liter V8 for a total of 430-hp.

With custom bodywork and a lowered suspension, this Panamera is starting to change our opinion on the car’s much-maligned looks.

    I can't tell you how tired I am of these so called "aotomotive specialist" telling us how they are soooooo disappointed that a manual tranny is not offered as a coice for the consumers. Especially in light that these 'double clutch' tranny's offer such better control of a car that is capable of far more than most drivers are capable of!! Give me a break!!!! Only those who are in a small "minority" would know how to handle a manual tranny properly. Admit the truth ALSO that these double clutch trannys are,by far, the one's that enthusiast choose!!!!!!
