I meant Porsche. It’s still early.

Yeah, but that’s how you pronounce it. Sorry I didn’t catch your misspell.

Ive heard it pronounced “poor-sha” by Many people, so I’m not sure

It is a German name (actually the name of a man, Ferdinand who started the company). You pronounce the ‘e’ at the end. “porsh-uh”

The Porsche TV commercials in the U.S. use the correct “Porsch-a” pronunciation. I would trust them.

the correct way is “Porsch-a” but i always say “porsh”

I’ve talked to salesmen at different Porche dealerships.

Each guy said different things. My money is on “Porch-uh”.

Of course it’s “Porsch-uh!” If that’s how the company pronounces it, that’s how it should be pronounced. The “uh” part is pretty soft though.
