Porsche Model Taking a Turn

The Wayzata area is in agreement that the new Porsche lineup is as brilliant as ever, but one question remains: how do you pronounce Porsche? If you’ve found yourself asking, “How do you say Porsche?” you’re not alone. Some people wonder if the name “Porsche” is Italian, which leads to confusion as to whether Porsche is pronounced as one syllable or two. This confusion has prompted the German luxury sports car manufacturer to produce a video that answers this question. Porsche Minneapolis is here to settle it once and for all!

How is Porsche Pronounced?

If you’re asking “Is Porsche Italian?”, the answer is no, it’s German. While some people pronounce the Italian brand name, “Porsh”, the correct pronunciation is as a two syllable word, like this: “Por-shuh”. Or, if you’re into pronunciation keys, this is how you pronounce it: /ˈpɔɹʃ/, /ˈpɔɹʃ.ə/, /ˈpɔɹʃ.i/. Translated from the German, Porsche means “offerings”, and it is often used as a first name for both males and females.

Porsche Background

Now that you know how to pronounce Porsche, here’s a little background information on this famous and celebrated mark:

  • Porsche is a German luxury and high-performance sports car manufacturer, which is headed in Stuttgart, German, and is currently owned by Volkswagen AG.
  • Ferdinand Porsche founded the German brand in 1931, when it began offering consulting and vehicle development services.
