Mein Auto: 2013 M5
I have both. I personally would never take either one to a track, so track performance is of no significance to me. As a daily driver, here are the pros and cons:

More power and torque
Better gadgets (HUD, album art, mobile office)
$13,000 less when comparably equipped

Panamera GTS
Better ride (air suspension)
Lower ride height with lift mechanism standard
Better exhaust sound (sport exhaust standard)
Better steering feel
More special-looking interior ( leather with alcantara, embroidered head rest, black button with chrome trim)
More useable trunk space
Better launch and wet weather performance (all wheel drive)
Much better rear leg room
Better body control (with optional PDCC)

I actually love gadgets, hence my enthusiasm for the M5. The power is also very fun when I am able to use it.
