Sharapova samples the new Boxster Spyder

Ahead of the WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party, the tennis star called in at Porsche Centre Mayfair for a ride in the latest Porsche.

Available to order since being unveiled in April, but not arriving officially in showrooms until July, the left-hand drive Boxster Spyder is visiting the UK for a few days only. The Spyder made its world debut at the New York Auto Show earlier this year, and is the lightest and most powerful Boxster yet built by Porsche.

Porsche Ambassador Maria Sharapova was so keen to see the car during its short time on these shores, that she made a special stop on her way to the WTA Pre-Wimbledon Party to make sure she didn’t miss out on a drive.

Driving around the streets of Mayfair was certainly an experience savoured by the five-time Grand Slam Champion. Speaking about the drive, Sharapova commented: “This is huge fun - truly thrilling. I love that this new Boxster Spyder is like a classic sports car, but at the same time feels so modern and sophisticated. It’s a fantastic car and I need to get one!”
