New from Porsche Article (in English) and video (in German).
Laura Siegemund: Spectacular driving experience in the Taycan Turbo S
From the press release: "Laura Siegemund’s day began with a briefing conducted by a professional instructress".
I had no idea the English language has a gender-specific word for instructor.

There are a lot of words in the English language that we Americans don’t use much. Instructress has been an English word for at least 400 years. ;)

Fair enough, but is it considered chauvinistic in this post-modern world like mailwoman?
