You Won’t Have an Excuse for Mispronouncing Porsche’s Name Anymore

Porsche teaches us once and for all the right way to do it

With a bunch of car brands from a lot of different countries, tending to mispronounce a brand’s name is somehow understandable.

One of our latest examples would be Hyundai (which we’ve recently tested): we call it HYUN-digh while in the UK is pronounced high-UUN-digh; in Spanish, it's more like Han-die, with the Venezuelan Spanish approach being “Joon-die.” They all may be seen as correct, but Hyundai taught us it's “more like Sunday” — if Sunday was a word you shout every time, like the people in this commercial do.

Anyway, getting back to today’s subject: Porsche. The German sports car maker released a YouTube video with the description “Have you ever wondered about the right way to pronounce Porsche? Or do you know someone who pronounces it in a wrong way? Be sure to let them know about this video.”

Is 2016 a little better now? We don’t know. But we know “Porsche” is “por-sha,” not “porsch.”
