How do you pronounce "Porsche?"

I've heard that Americans are the only to pronounce it as "porsh" and everyone else pronounces it correctly as "porsha." The founder, Ferdinand Porsche, also pronounced his name as such.

I, being the car enthusiast that I am, pronounce it "porsha."

Because porsches were made in Germany, the proper way to say it is 'porsha'. But more commonly, especially in England and America, people call it 'porsch'.

Where's the option for, "I don't give a **** because I'll never be able to afford one anyway."?

I normally pronounce (godIcan'tspelltoday) "Porsche" like "Porsh" because I'm lazy. If I need to, I pronounce it correctly, but that is almost never because everyone would think I was an idiot because they are too stupid to know that they were made in Germany.

I believe it's supposed to be 'por-SHA', but people just shorten it to 'porsh'.

LoL'd

I say it "Porsha", I think it sounds better, on top of it being the correct prononciation.
