Avid petrolhead Raducanu, 19, also took one out for a spin last month.

“Throughout the generations it’s so unique and beautiful in every way.
“I feel like it’s one of the most iconic cars that are out there.”

She added: “When I was younger I remember the Porsche Grand Prix was always a big tournament and a very different and unique tournament be cause the winner would get a Porsche.
“That was always very special.”

The world No11 is in a race against time to play her second Championships, having been suffering with a side strain.
Raducanu was forced to retire during her Nottingham Open clash with Viktorija Golubic a fortnight ago.
She subsequently pulled out of the Rothesay Classic in Birmingham, before opting not to take a wildcard for this week’s WTA event in Eastbourne.
Should she be able to take to court, Raducanu will be seeded tenth in the women’s singles draw in SW19.
