Maria Sharapova’s Red Hot Ride
This week, Porsche Global Ambassador Maria Sharapova was taken for a special chauffeur drive by Porsche’s star motorsport racer Mark Webber. The racing star took the tennis champ to Rod Laver Arena for her practice session in the lead up to the 2015 Australian Open Tennis Championships, the first grand slam of the year.
The Porsche pair turned heads as they cruised through Melbourne’s inner city in a stunning open-top red 911 Targa 4S valued at over $300,000.
“I’m a big tennis fan and a Maria Sharapova fan too so it was great to be able to give her a ride to Rod Laver Arena in one of the latest 911 sports cars,” said Webber, who is on summer vacation in Australia.
World number two Sharapova is in red hot form leading into the Australian Open, fresh and confident after a brilliant win in the Brisbane International last week.
Webber will again spearhead Porsche’s racing activities in 2015 as the German marque aims for a record 17th win at the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans sports car endurance race.
woman with drive wishes the Porsche pair all the best for the year ahead. And also is a little envious we weren’t invited along for the ride.
