How To Pronounce Porsche

Noqw lots of people have pronounce Porche by saying PORSH. That's WRONG! Here is an exact quote from another website:
OK, I've had it. I can normally blow it off when I hear some ditzy blond say Porsche wrong because I don't expect her to know any better, but it gets under my skin when I hear a car guy mispronounce it over and over again. Before you get too far into the filming of Top Gear, you should first learn how to pronounce Porsche. Here's a good description of the correct pronunciation:

What is the correct pronunciation of Porsche? While the “proper” way to pronounce some German terms in English may be debatable, this isn't one of them. Porsche is a family name, and the family members pronounce their surname PORSH-uh, not PORSH! Same for the car. You don't say NYKE for Nike, so don't be lazy and leave off the e in Porsche! Porsche's U.S. TV commercials pronounce the name correctly and so should you."
