Porsche ambassador Emma Raducanu has been featured in Germany’s Auto Classic magazine.

Raducanu, 20, was announced as a global ambassador of German luxury carmaker Porsche last year.

In one of her first photoshoots for Porsche, Raducanu posed in front of a Porsche old-timer.

Porsche is the main sponsor of a WTA 500 event in Stuttgart and Raducanu competed at the tournament in each of the last two years.

Shortly after making her second appearance at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, Raducanu became featured in Germany’s Auto Classic magazine.

Raducanu was hoping to win a Porsche supercar in Stuttgart

For the 2023 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix edition, it was decided to also reward the winner with a Porsche Taycan Turbo S Sport Turismo.

Just before the start of the tournament, Raducanu described it as a great car and said she would definitely love to drive it back home with herself. “A lot! Who wouldn’t want to win that?! I’ve been lucky enough to drive one on a few occasions and it’s a very smooth drive and tremendous acceleration!” Raducanu told Porsche-Tennis prior to the start of the Stuttgart tournament.

Unfortunately for Raducanu, her campaign at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix was a short one as she was beaten by Jelena Ostapenko in the Stuttgart first round. But after exiting Stuttgart, Raducanu got a chance to get behind the wheels of a Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS.

“Porsche have been amazing in supporting my off-court goals. Together we have put together a driving program that includes track lessons with more advanced cars and I’ve had a lot of fun improving my driving skills. The goal is to keep progressing and who knows what opportunities it might lead to.

I love testing new cars and learning about the engineering side of the industry as well,” Raducanu said. Meanwhile, Raducanu is currently home recovering from wrist and ankle surgeries.
