Maria Sharapova | Porsche 911 Carrera

Maria Sharapova is a Russian tennis star with four grand slam titles under her belt. She has taken Wimbledon, the French Open, the US Open and the Australian Open. Not only a talented player, this leggy 6′ 2″ stunner has modelled for many of her endorsements, and her looks have seen her appear on the cover of Gent’s magazines and the highly-acclaimed swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated.

Sharapova is known for liking the 911 Carrera. In fact, she owns more than one, but it’s this white model she is frequently spotted driving. The Russian beauty took the $130,000 car after winning the 2012 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.

Evgeni Malkin | Porsche 911 Turbo

Yevgeni Malkin is a Russian center and alternate captain for the Pittsburgh Penguins. When he’s not playing, the 27-year-old Malkin owns a restaurant in Magnitogorsk, an establishment he wanted designed to look like the inside of a prison.

Malkin is seen here with his soft stop 911 Turbo. The black on white really works with this car, and the rear wing looks a little old school, a shout out to the ‘duck tail’ fin from the 80s and 90s.

Andre Wisdom | Porsche Panamera Turbo

Andre Wisdom is an English soccer player who currently plays for Derby County on loan from Liverpool FC. Being only 20 years of age, Wisdom also captains the England under-21 squad as a defender.

Wisdom’s Porsche Panamera Turbo got first hand experience of typical British weather when it became stuck in mud 3 miles away from the nearest main road. Because he is on loan at Derby, Wisdom had to rely on GPS to get him to the game. Fortunately, after abandoning his Porsche, staff members picked him up and Derby won 3-0.

Despite being partly submerged, we can see this is bog (sorry) standard.

Dario Franchitti | Porsche 1973 911

Dario Franchitti is an extremely successful Indy Car Series driver. The Scot has taken the title four times, once in 2007, and the rest consecutively between 2009 and 2011. Franchitti has also won the infamous Indianapolis 500 three times – 2007, 2010 and 2012.

Off track Franchitti likes to take his classic 911 for a spin in and around the Tennessee mountain roads. This particular model features a 3.7-L that kicks out 325-bhp. Considering it’s stripped of everyday luxuries and weighs in at a slight 2,150-lbs, it’s a drivers’ paradise around the twisty stuff.

All in all I think its classic status combined with those gorgeous deep dish rims scores high.

Mark Webber | Porsche GT3 RS 4.0

Although Mark Webber raced his last F1 race with Red Bull Racing in Brazil this season, he is going on to race in the Porsche Cup series. This is a good thing as Webber has Porsches in his collection.

This GT3 RS 4.0 is one of 600 grass roots racers and is best suited for a track session, perhaps when Webber has something to get out of his system. As for his daily driver, this Aussie has the luxury of a very quick white 612-bhp GT2 RS.

Adrian Sutil | Porsche 911 Turbo


Force India driver, Adrian Sutil is a German with a penchant for German technology. Despite not being in the fastest car on the grid, Sutil has proved to be a very fast driver, however, consistency and a tendency to be at the wrong end of a stewards enquiry has let him down. When he’s not lapping in a Force India, Sutil loves taking his Techart Porsche 911 Turbo out for a thrashing. This is one of a handful of Porsches he currently owns.

Rio Ferdinand | Porsche Cayenne

Rio Ferdinand is centre-back for English premier side Manchester United. He has earned 81 caps for England whilst plating in defence between 1997 and 2011.

After a hard training session, what better way to return home than in a Porsche Cayenne? Many cars have passed through Rio’s garage throughout his career and he knows a thing or two about car ownership. Not happy with a standard Porsche Cayenne, Rio has gone for this tasteful Magnum Techart addition over the multitudes available.

Dizzee Rascal | Porsche Cayman

Dizzee Rascal is an English rapper, songwriter and producer proud of his Ghanaian and Nigerian roots. His music took off when the underground grime genre started making headway when it blended with sounds of UK garage. Dizzee put his own spin on the genre and hit the ground running, merging hip hop and R&B and tearing up the chart’s top 10.

Despite being a rapper, Dizzee does “keep it real” as he isn’t one to boast about jewels, labels or the size of his rims. Here we see Dizzee climbing from his understated Porsche Cayman in Soho, London.

Top 10 Celebrities That Drive a Porsche

Porsche and the celebrity have a very healthy relationship. Although the Porsche isn’t in same price range as some of the expensive cars celebrities go for, its German build quality and rich heritage has celebrities selecting cars from their entire range.

Here are 10 celebrities of various entertainment genres with their various models from the Porsche range.

Funny man and Superbad star Jonah Hill recently acquired this Porsche 991 Carrera, a car he uses to cruise around Los Angeles in whilst shopping.

For rapper Chris Brown this Porsche Turbo S looks fairly normal. He’s already crashed a black one, so let’s hope he not only keeps this one in one piece, but he also leaves the paint job well alone. If you’re not sure what I mean, check out his Lamborghinis.

Miley Cyrus has been in the news a lot recently, mainly because of her twerking and lack of clothing. Here we see Miley in one of her classic outfits that suggests mild neurosis; her choice in purchasing this Porsche Cayenne GTS, however, is anything but.

Singer LeAnn Rimes had only just taken a parking ticket off the windshield of her Porsche Panamera when she got snapped. The 31-year-old should perhaps think about spending some cash at the car wash than on herself next time out shopping.

PGA star, Rickie Fowler obviously likes his cars to stick to the road like glue, as here we have a blacked-out Nissan GT-R and a Porsche GT3RS. I love the Porsche’s colour scheme – very retro and very fitting.

Pop star Ashley Tisdale has just filled up her Porsche Boxster at a gas station in Hollywood. Not the best choice of Porsche available, especially if you have the cash to buy a 911.

Despite Ellen Degeneres’ hat, she was spotted showing a little style and taste by stepping into her black Porsche Turbo S at a restaurant in L.A. Apparently this TV star loves driving fast and hates all other cars on the road – for that, I forgive that hat.

If you can look past those perfectly sculpted legs, you’ll find Lauren Conrad’s Porsche Cayenne. This girl has a superb sense of style in looking good whilst both walking and driving.

Rapper, Soulja Boy had good reason to bombard his Instagram/Twitter accounts with photos of his new Porsche 991 Cabriolet as it is a stunningly good looking ride. Although, lose the arm, Soulja Boy, you look like a right…

Maroon 5 star and “The Voice” judge, Adam Levine likes the classic look and was spotted running around in his this gorgeous 356 Porsche with his latest girlfriend riding shotgun.

Top 10 Modified Celebrity Cars

Although this may sound like a fairly straight forward Top-10 look into the broad and varied world of celebrity cars, when it comes down to finding 10 “top” celebrity mods, it’s actually harder than you think. Celebrities are known for their often big and eccentric egos, and they like nothing more than displaying this in their cars. When money is no object and your ego is big and/or eccentric, car mods and visions usually go terribly wrong. Take the Hulkster below and his SRT Viper, for instance, and you see what I’m up against here. The Mk I Viper happens to be one of my favourite cars, especially in red with the factory yellow rims, but this is going too far.

So after much internet trawling, I present to you some of the better and tasteful celebrity modifications. This is entirely subjective, of course, but anyone finding the above attractive shouldn’t even be reading this article in the first place.

Now this is more than you’re average modded out car. This serious piece of machinery is a Hennessey Venom GT Spyder, a highly-modified version of the Lotus Exige. Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler bought this one for a cool $1.1M. You wouldn’t think someone wearing that sock/sandle combo would require a car capable of 0-200-mph in 15.9 seconds.

Known for hosting The Car Show on Speed TV and The Man Show, Adam Corolla has a very nice car collection. Apart from his race-spec JDM livery and Lamborghinis, he’s also got a very nice Aston Martin DB9 modified by legend Chip Foose. Apart from a hood scoop, Brembo discs and calipers and some black aftermarket 18″ wheels were fitted.

Not actually in shot in the collection, this is a very rare Ford RS200 owned by a very lucky Tim Allen. For a funny man this car couldn’t be anymore serious. The RS200 Evolution is a Group B lunatic of a car, helping the FIA finally make the decision to ban Group B rally. Most of these cars ended up in collections like this, and this particular car has just 3,500 miles on it. It doesn’t look that outrageous, but consider this: 0-60-mph in 2.1 seconds on tarmac… and that was in the late 80s.

This modified car is one of many unique and rare cars owned by TV legend Jay Leno. This monster is powered by an M47 Patton tank engine and has a custom aluminum body. It has 810-bhp and weighs in at 4300-kg (1/11th of the actual tank’s weight).

It’s thought Leno is set to upgrade with fuel injection and twin turbochargers to double the bhp to 1600-bhp, so around 400-bhp per tonne. Not that it will trouble Leno’s wallet, but this tank car will only manage 5-mpg.

Ralph Lauren is obviously a man with natural style and vision, and this shows in his car collection. Pictured above is the fashion mogul driving his Porsche RUF CTR-3 around the Hamptons. More than just a body kit and custom styling, the RUF CTR-3 features the kind of technology that gives you 750-bhp, a top speed of 233-mph and 0-62-mph in 3.1 seconds.

WWE wrestling star, Bill Goldberg is known for his love of muscle cars, and his clone of the ’70 Satellite to a Plymouth Superbird is simply stunning. The Superbird was either loved or hated in NASCAR, but it was eventually banned because of its aerodynamic advantage and 200+mph speeds.

Reality TV star, Barry Weiss owns his fair share of classic customs like this ’47 Cadillac. Being an avid collector for most of life, he knows when he’s hit upon something special. Is there anything cooler than doing a burnout on your own drive in a custom caddy?

Singer Cee Lo Green is looking chilled in his modern spin on a ’35 Auburn Speedster. Loving the flat paint combined with this red centre hubs.

Years before the Fast & Furious franchise began, Paul Walker (Bryan) admitted to laughing at the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) cars, but thanks to the F&F movies, he found himself totally infatuated by them. His personal garage features many JDM turbo rockets, but it’s this slammed Datsun 240Z that does it for us.

If I think about Sly Stallone driving I picture that ultra cool grey muscle car he uses in Cobra, but unfortunately he doesn’t actually own it. He does, however own this old school hot rod, a ride he likes driving around Hollywood.
