How do you spell "Porsche"?

How do you spell "Porsche"?

Did you hear about the man who drove into the garage with a Porsche and got back a Porshce?

It might sound like the beginning of a bad joke but the owner of a £100,000 Porsche 911 presumably wasn't laughing when dozy mechanics misspelt the famous brand on the rear bumper after carrying out a minor repair.

The owner took his luxury car to a mechanics' in Dubai to have a minor dent in its bumper repaired. Initially he thought the Porsche had been returned in perfect condition... until noticing that instead of saying PORSCHE - one of the most famous and recognisable brands and logos in the world - it now read PORSHCE.

The Porshce misspelt blunder went viral when Ollie Martin, a friend of the owner, tweeted a picture to Jeremy Clarkson, alongside a message reading, "A friend in Dubai took his 911 in for a prang repair, this is what Porsche did... BRILLIANT!"

The former Top Gear presenter immediately retweeted it to his 5.18 million followers.
