I have previously received shtick regarding my attention to spelling and grammar. This is why it pays to know how to spell people...

I’ve seen videos of Porsche’s being made and they use a cut out template fixed to the boot before applying the letters so I’d think it would be impossible to make this mistake at the factory. I suspect the car has been rear ended and the body shop weren’t paying attention when they re-applied the letters.

Spelling and grammar are atrocious nowadays.

No apostrophe is required in 'Porsche's' ;)

I know my brother played with the Marconi digital letterhead in the 80's, when working there. It was well into April before someone noticed he was working for Macaroni.

There's a FB group called 'The Redundant Proof Readers Society'. Some hilarious gaffes on there.

Should there be an apostrophe after 'Readers' ? ;) :P :)
