If you're reading this, you probably already know how to pronounce the name Porsche. But if you don't, the video above may come as a surprise. It's two syllables, not one.

The name Porsche is commonly mispronounced here in the United States, for whatever reason. The company, which was originally known in 1931 under the name "Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH," is named after its founder Ferdinand Porsche. The Porsche family (along with the related Piëch family) is still heavily involved in the company that bears their name.
