Sharapova Porsche vs. Beckham Range RoverTue, 11 Feb 2014 00:00:00 -0800
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham was the first person that came to mind after we heard on Monday that Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova was getting her own version of the Porsche Panamera GTS. Beckham was appointed creative design executive for Range Rover in 2012 and helped with the Evoque Special Edition with Victoria Beckham. (Sharapova is also a former Landy shill. —ED)
That Evoque was a true special edition, coming with unique, matte gray paint with gloss accents and a bunch of rose gold. Big, gloss black wheels were standard, as was a four-piece luggage set. So it wasn’t the performance that was upgraded, just the look.
Similarly, the Porsche Panamera GTS by Maria Sharapova is really just the company’s way of showing off its Porsche Exclusive program. The spec sheet for Sharapova’s car includes black LED headlight surrounds, additional leather trim with decorative stitching, carbon-fiber trim and black 20-inch wheels. The sill plates also feature “Maria Sharapova” lettering.
So, there’s no reason we can’t pit these two titans of beauty -- the cars, not the women -- against each other to decide what’s what.
