Maria Sharapova presents her Porsche Panamera GTS



Individual style to the last detail

Atlanta/Moscow. During a visit to her hometown of Sochi, Russia for the Olympics, Porsche Brand Ambassador Maria Sharapova presented her personal interpretation of an exceptional sportscar in the luxury segment - the Porsche Panamera GTS "by Maria Sharapova". This unique Panamera demonstrates how a standard production car can be transformed into a unique and bespoke luxury sedan by adding exclusive custom options. The Panamera GTS "by Maria Sharapova" demonstrates the most personal touch in terms of design, individual custom tailoring and, as a result, unsurpassed exclusivity - all typical attributes that also characterize the international tennis star.

"Creating and specifying a very personal Porsche Panamera GTS was such an exciting undertaking. It opens the door to a whole new design sensibility and allowed me to bring my own personal aesthetic." said Sharapova. "It's an ingenious melding of the design world with automotive personalization."

The Porsche Panamera GTS "by Maria Sharapova" is distinguished by a number of Porsche Exclusive options that extend beyond the already extensive list of extravagant modifications enjoyed by customers. It goes without saying that they all meet the stringent quality and safety requirements of Porsche. The exterior color of the Panamera GTS is Carrera 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. Among the Exclusive options, the Porsche Panamera "by Maria Sharapova" is equipped with an extended leather trim in the interior with decorative stitching in crème and a partial carbon fiber trim. The instrument dials and vehicle key are painted to match the Carrera White body color. The front and rear headrests are embossed with the Porsche crest and the armrests are customized with the "Panamera GTS" model logo. The carbon fiber door guards also surprisingly feature "Maria Sharapova" lettering.

The Porsche Panamera GTS is equipped with a naturally aspirated 4.8 liter V8 engine with 440 hp at 6,700 rpm. It accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and reaches a top track speed of 179 mph
