The owners of this car will be red-faced when they learn their Porsche Cayenne isn’t quite as perfect as they once thought.
While stuck in bumper-to-bumper peak hour traffic, one eagle-eyed Melbourne driver noted the luxury car in front of him had a small but pretty significant flaw.
The brand name of the sleek black German SUV, which costs between $94,000 and $240,000, was spelled incorrectly.

The badge on the rear of the car spelled ‘Porsche’ as ‘Porshce’.
Whether the owner of the car was aware of the error is not clear.
A Porsche Australia spokesman told Daily Mail Australia the company was pretty certain the incorrect spelling of the badge was not a manufacturing error.
The car’s manufacturers, who no doubt have some explaining to do, spelled ‘Porsche’ as ‘Porshce’ on the back of the vehicle
‘Our attention to detail and quality control is second to none so I can’t envisage that happening on our end,’ he said.
‘At the factory in Germany one of the key things that we check is that all badging is correct.’
‘It’s then checked again during the pre-delivery inspection at the dealership in Australia as well. It’s on two separate checklists.’
‘We do those things on every single car and take quality control extremely seriously.’
He also went on to say the model in the particular photo isn’t brand new, and would have left a dealership some time ago, meaning the driver is more than likely aware of the mishap.
Just to be safe, drivers who have own a Porsche Cayenne should probably take a moment to double check their new ride isn’t sporting a spelling error.
