    If you want to nitpick, it's more of an "eh" sound, but it's mostly right.


    Not only that, but it's also someone's proper name. Saying Poorsh is like calling someone with "Johnson" as their last name "Mr. Jah-ha-n-sone"

    I do beleive that the current 911 Turbo is faster than the 911 GT1 in the quarter mile. I'm not sure why.

    I got that info off of Road & Track.

    Porsche fans really have to stop crying over the pronunciation of a 7 letter word. Again, you say tomato..

    I think because the turbo is all wheel drive it gets more grip and a better start. The GT1 is rear wheel so it dosn't get as much grip so it has a worse start up. It would be interesting to see them head-head.

    The year was 1951 and the car was a 356 Light Alloy Coupe. Its distinctive features are the panels beside the wheels.
