Congratulations, GR8! Another fellow Canadian with a PTS gt3, eh!






I happen to like 'Pastel Orange' very much.

A little history on this fairly 'new' orange paint formulation at Porsche:



This was the color that Porsche kept as it's only solid orange once PAG
retired 'RS Orange', color code 8C6, after MY2010.



Sometime later, in the 991/981 period, they also approved the vintage
'Gulf Orange'. That color had been also approved for the 997 but was
rarely ordered. Notice the contrast between PTS 'Gulf Orange' 997 and
a period 'RS Orange' Limited Edition Boxster in the photo below:



'Continental Orange', another great vintage orange from the early 1970's,
was rejected by PAG after its feasibility study. And the classic & historic
'Signal Orange' from the late 60s/early 70's has not yet been tested for
PTS on the 991/981. So 'Pastel Orange' is still the brightest solid orange
hue you can get via PTS from Porsche today!

BEAUTIFUL color! I'd order this in a heartbeat!

I'd LOVE to see this with some black stripes/accents.

Though, I guess I'm a bit biased to stripes!

Maybe one the best current PTS colors IMO that nobody does. My Cayman S Sport was in RS/Signal Orange and is not a PTS color as Eduardo stated. I am so happy to see Pastel Orange may even be a better Orange. Looks to be a deeper truer Orange. Huge Kudos!

2015 PTS, so. many. questions. Porsche.

Congrats! Canada has the code cracked on PTS that's for sure.

There is a Gulf orange 2014 GT3 in SoCal. Well not sure of the exact shade of orange... But orange for sure!

Default 'RS Orange' / Color Code 8C6...

Just to clarify...it was known as 'RS Orange' or simply 'Orange',
color code 8C6. Didn't include the 'Signal' designation. It's no
longer an approved PTS for the 991/981, although it was allowed
to be done on a VIP's 918 last year. And in my opinion, it's one
of the most memorable (& one of the best) color formula for
'Orange' in Porsche's long history!

It's funny how Signal Orange has a shade of yellow in it and Signal Yellow has a shade of Orange in it.
