    One of my pet peeves...

    I don't mind so much if its a non-owner saying it, but does it bug you guys when an owner says "Porsh," instead of "Porsh-uh"?

    Re: One of my pet peeves...

    I've heard several Germans talk about "Porsche" in one syllable, but with the accent it sounds authentic. the "e" is just a faint "fall-away sound." I've heard it pronounced this way by several "foreign speaking people.

    Why are we talking about this


    Re: One of my pet peeves...

    I think it's funny : on every forum there's a discussion about this, although it's simple. When you want to say it in German, it's "Porsch-uh". Otherwise, one syllabus.

    For the people who own them, race them, or just understand
    what they truly are..... It will always be " Porscha " !

    Then how comes that every german that i met said "Porsche", with faint e?
    If i remember right, even Alois Ruf pronounces that way.

    I'll never forget that guy in Vegas who asked me what car I own back home in Germany. I told him I own a "PorschE" and he replied "a Porsh? This is a french car, right?".
    I'll also never forget the moment one guy in Ft.Lauderdale asked me what kind of cars I prefer and I told him "Coupes". He looked at me and asked me if I mean "Coups" which I didn't understand.
    My conclusion: every language has it's own pronounciations and I can live with that.

    But it is definetely: PORSHUH.

    Re: One of my pet peeves...

    I always say poor-sha - accent on the first syllable Someone makes a t-shirt with a play on that.
