Stuttgart/Moscow. During a visit to her hometown of Sochi, Russia, Porsche Brand Ambassador Maria Sharapova presents her interpretation of an exceptional sportscar in the luxury segment – the Porsche Panamera GTS “by Maria Sharapova”.

“Creating and specifying a very personal Porsche Panamera was such an exciting undertaking. It opens the door to a whole new design sensibility and allowed me to bring my own personal aesthetic.

I count myself not only as an athlete, but also as a designer – I’ve designed full collections of luxury accessories, apparel, and even candy for years,” said Sharapova.

“I never thought I would have the opportunity to add a car – especially a Porsche – to that repertoire. It’s an ingenious melding of the design world with automotive personalization.”

The presented model is distinguished by a number of options from the Porsche Exclusive program, which enlarge the wide range of Porsche Panamera modifications by exclusive features and which fulfil customer wishes beyond the usual mindset. And naturally this is always fully in line with all the quality and safety requirements of Porsche AG.

The exterior colour of the Panamera GTS is white; sporty, high-gloss touches on the exterior are provided by the black LED main headlights including the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+), the tinted LED rear lights, the black tailpipe covers of the sports exhaust system and the 20-inch Panamera sports wheels in black.
