Tennis superstar Maria Sharapova has become Porsche’s brand ambassador, signing an initial three-year deal.

Russian tennis superstar Maria Sharapova has been selected by Porsche to be their first ever global brand ambassador, with the four-time Grand Slam champion set to represent the German carmaker for the next three years. While choosing a woman for the role might raise some eyebrows given almost 90 percent of 911 buyers are men, Porsche is adamant the tennis champ is the perfect match, sharing similar attributes of elegance, power and charisma. Like a Porsche, she’s also pretty hot to look at and known for making a mean grunt when at full tilt.

Last year, Sharapova won a white 911 Carrera S Cabrio at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, and she can now add Porsche to her impressive commercial portfolio that includes Nike, Tag Heuer, Tiffany & Co. and Samsung that brings her in a cool $30 million a year.

German aftermarket tuning outfit DP Motorsport is celebrating its 40th birthday as well as that of the classic Porsche 911 RS. To mark the special occasions, the company decided to do something very special in the form of a retro conversion kit for the 964-generation 911 that’s been styled to resemble the classic RS 2.7. Cosmetically, the kit includes a new hood, front and rear bumpers, fenders, side sills and a rear spoiler. The exterior is painted in a classic sports grey with Indian Red trim.

Also added is a polished stainless steel tailpipe and a new lens cover for the turn signal indicator and grille. For a further dose of retro goodness, buyers can also opt for a set of throwback Fuchs wheels. Under the hood, the tuner increased output of the 3.6-liter flat-six from 250 horsepower to 280. Other mechanical improvements include a modern suspension, ABS, power brakes and steering, a catalytic converter and air conditioning. For the mechanical and cosmetic updates, DP Motorsport is offering its conversion kit for 6,828 Euros and an additional 2,236 Euros for the wheels.
