Five-time Grand Slam Champion, Porsche ambassador, and all-around good girl Maria Sharapova has been to Los Angeles recently, bringing a new tennis event to the city of angels called “Maria Sharapova & Friends, presented by Porsche.” Spicing up the event was the heavy presence of the 2016 Porsche 991 Facelift.

OK, so the real purpose of this while thing was to promote the new Porsche 991 Facelift. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Tennis lovers enjoyed good matches, the 911 got some screen time, and we get to see the lovely Maria doing her thing on the backdrop of a gorgeous sports car. Everybody wins!

“We are excited to partner with our Global Brand Ambassador Maria Sharapova for this engaging tennis event in the United States, Porsche’s most important market,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. “Maria Sharapova is an exceptional athlete. She truly combines superior performance in her sports with power and elegance. These are the exact characteristics that are conveyed in our sports cars.”

And just to recap, the Porsche 991 Facelift comes with a couple of new turbocharged 3.0 liter engines, making 370 hp in Carrera and 420 hp in the Carrera S. The turbocharging helps with the fuel economy.
