Video: Porsche Panamera GTS reviewed

Richard Meaden reviews the most driver-focused Porsche saloon yet, the Panamera GTS, on video

With the emphasis on sporting character it promises to be the most driver-focussed Panamera yet. But does it deliver on that promise? Richard Meaden finds out on video...
