[Ads-l] Porsche

I can't seem to find a searchable version of the Archives,
so I’ll just flat-out ask.

Does anyone know whether there’s been
a study of whether 'Porsche' is pronounced as one or two syllables?
In a totally unrelated context a friend has suggested that
the pronunciations are correlated with whether you own one or not.
Does anyone have any insight on the question, or pointers to
work on the topic?
