These are precisely the qualities that are embroiled in our sports cars,” said Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller. “Her profile and charisma are an ideal fit for Porsche. She is also highly respected around the world and enjoys an outstanding reputation.”

Sharapova was rewarded with a white Porsche Carrera S Cabriolet after winning last year’s Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, Germany.
