The special Panamera GTS was unveiled during Sharapova’s visit to her hometown of Sochi, Russia, where the 2014 Winter Olympics are being held. Customized by the Porsche Exclusive program, the Panamera GTS by Maria Sharapova features a white, high-gloss exterior with black LED headlights, tinted LED tail lights, black exhaust tip covers and 20-inch black wheels.

Inside, the Panamera GTS has been outfitted with extended leather trim with decorative stitching in creme. The instrument dials have also been painted white to match the body of the vehicle in addition to the vehicle key. The front and rear headrests have been embossed with the Porsche crest while the armrests are customized with the Panamera GTS logo. To make it truly unique to Sharapova however, the carbon fiber door sills now feature individual “Maria Sharapova” lettering.
“Creating and specifying a very personal Porsche Panamera was such an exciting undertaking,” said Sharapova. “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. 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.”
