How to Pronounce Porsche

2019 Porsche 911 Carrera Driving

Everyone recognizes Porsche vehicles for their blend of exhilarating performance and luxury interiors, but exactly how to pronounce Porsche is often a matter of some debate. Is it ‘Porsch’ or ‘Por-shuh’?

Well, we can put those debates to rest and save you the annoyance of ever mispronouncing Porsche again. Porsche is actually a two-syllable word in its proper form, so ‘Por-shuh’ is technically the right way to go. You can find out more with our quick look at Porsche history.

A Brief History of Porsche

How do you say Porsche? Drivers from Nashua and beyond might disagree, but it’s always interesting to look back on the history of Porsche. The brand was first born back in 1948 through the extensive modification of Volkswagen models. That was the year the first Porsche model made its way through Stuttgart, and it was followed by the world-renowned Porsche 356 in 1950.

Other milestones include:

  • 1953: The Porsche 550 Spyder took home its first race win at the Nürburgring.
  • 1956: The 10,000th Porsche 356 was first produced to coincide with the automaker’s anniversary.
  • 1964: The series production of the Porsche 911 commenced, defining style and performance in the world of luxury vehicles.
  • 1972: Porsche AG was created.
  • 1974: The Porsche 911 Turbo debuted at the Paris Auto Show. The 911 Turbo was the first production sports car to feature an exhaust turbocharger and pressure regulator.
  • 1996: The 1 millionth Porsche vehicle was produced.
  • 2002: The Porsche Cayenne SUV was added to create a third model line for the brand.
  • 2005: Construction of the Porsche Museum began in Zuffenhausen.
  • 2016: The new Panamera G2 debuted to the world in Berlin.
