Recently unveiled at the L.A. Auto Show, the 2012 Porsche Panamera GTS receives some serious upgrades compared to its predecessors. Building on a blueprint laid out by its cousin, the Panamera S, this new release from Porsche will quickly get you from point A to point B, and on weekends, point C.

The 2012 Porsche Panamera GTS is the latest incarnation from the luxury sportscar manufacturer. With a focus on performance and efficiency, the 2012 Porsche Panamera GTS has an upgraded engine that now churns out 430 horsepower from a 4.8 liter V-8. The torque was bumped up from 369 pounds to 384, while the AWD traction is combined with Porsche's PDK dual-clutch transmission. To top it off, this beauty comes with a racing-inspired paddle shifter and does 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds.

Designers also took aesthetics of the car into account, with black accents throughout the exterior and the sport exhaust system getting matte black tailpipes. Stats for Supercharged Sports Sedans Trending: Older & Average
