Question, is Porsche pronounced (porsh) or (porsh-a)?

nice car - but to answer your question, it is pronounced "por-sha" because porche is a german word and the e is pronounced as an "a" (rhymes with "duh").

hot damn, and it's porsh-a.
That car would be really nice to have, I've always wanted a Porsche. And it's pronounced Porsh-a.
Thats what I thought. I hear it mispronounced so much in public and on television I started to doubt. :)
