How to Pronounce Porsche

2021 Porsche Panamera

East Brunswick drivers who want to add sophisticated performance and comfort to their daily drives will enjoy a new Porsche vehicle from Ray Catena Porsche, but customers may be wondering “How do you pronounce Porsche?” Since Porsche is a luxury brand, its name can be mispronounced due to its unique spelling. A common mispronunciation is “Porsch”, but you pronounce Porsche as “Porsh-uh”. Since Porsche is a two-syllable word, the pronunciation is more fluid though, making it “Por-shuh”.

There’s a lot to learn about what the Porsche name means and how to spell it. Follow along with Ray Catena Porsche below as we cover more about the Porsche brand and history. 

What the Name “Porsche” Means

What does the Porsche name mean? The name Porsche is actually the surname of the company’s founder, Ferdinand Porsche. In the beginning, Porsche was an engineering consulting firm that was geared towards the automotive industry. Before the Porsche company was making vehicles, they helped create other memorable models like the Volkswagen Beetle. The first vehicle to carry the Porsche name was the Porsche 356 which debuted in 1948. To this day, new Porsche vehicles echo the styling of the Porsche 356 in their designs. 

How to Spell Porsche

“How to spell Porsche” may seem like a straightforward question, but the spelling can be hard to remember if it’s not in front of you. Our recommendation is to split the word into two smaller parts that are easier to remember. Begin the word with “Por”, then add “sch” and finally tack an “e” on the end. Get into the rhythm of spelling Porsche in three parts and you’ll have no problem learning how to spell Porsche correctly!

Now that you know how to pronounce Porsche and what the Porsche name means, let’s take a closer look at the history of the Porsche brand.
