Jay should know better considering he is renowned as a car guy.
Disclaimer - perhaps some beers were consumed before writing this post!Always a recipe for some amusing posts! I had nothing but a bike for a while, too, and my finances have gone from scraping up change under the couch for dinner to living pretty comfortably...right now things are good, but my multi-year consulting gig is coming to an end this month, so gear purchases are on hold for a while...I've definitely enjoyed my car for the last 8 years / 40,000 miles - other than when I've had to pay for the service bill And yes, I have a T-shirt that shows the correct pronunciation...and I have no idea why people mispronounce it. It's a person's name! The worst instance I've seen was watching a show where Jay Leno got to drive the then-new Carrera GT at Talladega in front of Porsche's executives. He told that that it was a "great Porsh" and I cringed and hoped that they wouldn't consider him an ambassador for all Americans!Nice ... enjoy! (And remember that the name "Porsche" has two syllables.) For my money, Jeeps (specifically Wranglers) are the best go-anywhere vehicles ever made.
Where did the one syllable use of Porsche come from? We don't see people saying Ja-eeps, Fa-ord, etc.
