The new Porsche Panamera GTS and Panamera GTS Sport Turismo have made their official debut.

Just like the outgoing Panamera GTS, the new model is a bit sharper, a bit stiffer and a bit louder than the standard version of Porsche’s family car.

The extra sporty take on the Panamera gets standard three-chamber adaptive air suspension, 10mm lower suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management, larger brakes (15.3-inches in the front and 14.3-inches in the rear) and a sports exhaust system.

The Panamera GTS is also the most accessible Panamera model to feature Porsche’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine. The eight-cylinder makes 460 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque in the application, down 88 hp and 111 lb-ft of torque from the pricier Panamera Turbo.

Cosmetic upgrades include black 20-inch wheels, a standard Sport Design body kit and GTS badging. The cabin also gets some additional equipment in the way of Alcantara upholstery, aluminum trim and an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel. An optional Interior GTS package is available as well, adding contrasting interior upholstery and trim elements. Porsche is also rather proud of its crisp-looking new head-up display, which will appear on the Panamera GTS before trickling to other Panamera trims.

Prices for the Panamera GTS will start at $129,350 including $1,050 in destination, while the Panamera GTS Sport Turismo wagon will be priced from $135,550.
