Is it porsha or porsh?
I have always said, Poor-shhhhhhh
Not sure tomato tomatoe
"Porsha" is the correct method, but most times I say "Porsh" because of the people I'm associating with.
I was told by a friend years ago that if it was pronounced the incorrect way, then you sound like a poor noob...
Wouldn't want the truth to come out...
Germans pronounce the E, English do not...
<-Can't afford one so it really doesn't matter.
It is 'porsh-a'
The abomination 'porsh' came about from clueless, self-absorbed Californians.
<--- has owned several Porshes
<--- has never owned a Porsh
An "e" at the end of a German word (ANY German word) is NEVER silent.
bloom-a (Blume) = flower
shoo-a (Schue) = shoe
lerv-a (Loewe) = lion
por-sha (Porsche) = Porsche.
Correctly... With the 'ah on the end.
I do not, however, say jag-you-are. Even if the person I'm speaking with is British. I just can't do that one.
Whateva, I'm an 'merican and this is 'merica! I'll call it what I want!
Tous, I would have never guessed you to be a Porsche guy.
If you (anyone here) ever has an opportunity to visit the Porsche museum in Stuttgart, it's well worth the time.
Two 911s and a 914.
Got old and had to have a practical car. Dang, I miss crawling under a car to adjust valves and check chain tensioners.
Oh and 356c = Boing!
Poo-shay. The R is silent. That's the real correct way.
Reminds me of an old joke.
What's the difference between a guy that owns a Porsche and a guy that doesn't?
I'm sure you know about these guys...
Blasphemy, I know, but....
I agree on the name having a suffix... Funny thing, when I say the name referring to the manufacturer in general I say it correctly... When I say it while describing a certain model I do it incorrectly...
correct way --- Hey let's drive past the Porsh-a dealership"
incorrect way -- Dang, did you see that Porsh 996..?
Strange, I know..
Iv'e always hand a hankering for a 356, but just never found the right one at the right price.
Speaking of Porsche.
Any of you guys ever hear of a wrench called "The Maestro"?
Or his book (it's a reach to call it a book), "Secrets of the Inner Circle"?
A guy here in town has a '56(?) 356 that's by no means perfect and he just got it insured for $215,000. That's a fact.
