Porsche Panamera GTS
We’ve done three Panamera’s in the past, but this one is probably one of our favorites. Something about the 970 G1 Porsche Panamera GTS just feels right. Yes, it’s an older variation; but its significant because it paved the way for the Panamera’s success. Under the Turbo and Turbo S lies the GTS. Equipped with a naturally aspirated 4.8 liter V8, this thing pumps out over 400 horsepower and nearly the same torque. In addition to raw power, the ZF 7-speed PDK dual clutch transmission turns thing into a (almost) race car.
Power is one thing, but we’re here to talk about wheels and fitment. To be fair, Porsche does a pretty good job at fitting their cars with sufficient wheels and tires. For example, an optioned out first gen GTS came with 22×9.5’s with a ET55 offset. See the problem? That offset is way too high, at least in our opinion. So, as you know, we did what we do best.

How do you squeeze more performance out of a car that was literally built with that very thing in mind? Well, there are two ways to go about it. More power? ECU tune. Better handling? AGGRESSIVE WHEELS.
This Porsche Panamera GTS is running our new Flow Forged CFF46 finished in a deep Gloss Black. As for fitment, we ran 22×9 wrapped in 265/30 in the front and 22×10.5 wrapped in 315/25 in the rear. Rubbers, we’re talking Pirelli P Zero. What else?
By up-sizing to a 10.5″ width in the rear, it promotes much better handling during cornering and just overall better stability. Because this car has so much space in the fenders, we were able to not only fit a much wider wheel, but still keep beefy tires mounted, as to not sacrifice performance or ride quality.
