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.
