Maria Sharapova is no stranger to Porsche. In fact, it was just last year that she won the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart taking home a white 911 Carrera S Cabriolet along with the tournament prize money.
Given her familiarity with the Porsche brand it was a fairly easy decision for her to come on board as brand ambassador for the next three years.
"This is a really special day for me. I have had the privilege to be associated with some of the best brands in the world, but now to be partners with Porsche, is such an amazing honor”, she explained during her presentation in Stuttgart.
For Porsche Decision Was Easy
Born in Russia and living in the United States, Sharapova has achieved victories at all four Grand Slam tournaments in women's tennis and she was ranked number 1 for a total of 21 weeks.
"Maria Sharapova is an exceptional athlete. She combines top performance in her sports with elegance and power. These are precisely the qualities that are embroiled in our sports cars", as Matthias Mueller, CEO of Porsche AG, explained in today's introduction of the partnership. According to Mueller it was not easy to find the right person to be Porsche´s ambassador. "Maria Sharapova is the perfect choice. Her profile and charisma are an ideal fit for Porsche. She is also highly respected around the world and enjoys an outstanding reputation."
