    "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...

    It is 'porsh-a'

    The abomination 'porsh' came about from clueless, self-absorbed Californians. :upeyes:


    <--- has owned several Porshes
    <--- has never owned a Porsh

    An "e" at the end of a German word (ANY German word) is NEVER silent.

    so...
    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.

    Tous, I would have never guessed you to be a Porsche guy. :thumbsup:

    If you (anyone here) ever has an opportunity to visit the Porsche museum in Stuttgart, it's well worth the time.

    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?
























    Ah.

    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.
