Russian tennis sensation Maria Sharapova has long been associated with one of the biggest sporting car brands in the world: Porsche. The German autocar manufacturers are one of the most iconic brands in the world and in Sharapova, they have had one of the most iconic tennis players of the last decade as their brand ambassador.
For the launch of their most iconic car, the eight generation of the Porsche 911, the Russian tennis star was present at a grand gala event in Los Angeles along with other celebrities like Armie Hammer.
For the event, Sharapova was all glammed up in a beautiful outfit, looking at her very best.
Sharapova also got nostalgic in another post on Instagram, sharing some incredible memories which she has made with her Porsche family.
“Incredibly proud to have been a small part of @porsche’s family for over five years now. Yesterday marked the launch of a new 911 and as I was sitting down watching the huge fancy screens showcasing the history of every 911 ever to be made, I couldn’t help but think of the cars and experiences I’ve had the fortune to be a part of. From the victory on center court in Stuttgart ( where I casually forgot to take the break off a 911 driving down a ramp ), that first nonchalant ride on the Spider 918 (@aussiegrit was the driver, I was the pale passenger) to seeing the innovations behind every model release at the LA Auto shows..( and personally introducing the Macan to the world for the very first time ) Lucky girl “
The 5-time Grand Slam champion also shared some images of her checking out the new machine.
She then checked the new generation of the 911 from the inside.
Finally, she struck a pose with fellow Porsche brand ambassador and former F1 driver Mark Webber.
All in all, a memorable night in Los Angeles for Maria Sharapova.
