    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    Crazy Indeed. But when it comes to Orange I liked the three layers Gallardo Orange color.

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    Wonder how much deposit dealer confiscated from ordering buyer for this "unique" GT2. Should be interesting to see at what price this "unique" car finally sells....

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    this car doesnt seem "THAT" outrageous or hard to sell, so i don't think the dealer would have charged too much of a deposit.

    that said, if you go and order a purple over pink car, they WILL ask for about 10-20% non-refundable deposit.

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    Actually there is a 996 TT around my place in the exact same colour. It looks a little bit weird on the TT but since the GT2 is the even more extreme car I am actually fine with that. Still I am quite surprised that they can ask such a starting price!

    This would definately be a car worth to consider but I'd say it is a bit too much for me right now...

    Greetings!

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    That is the best looking GT2 I have EVER seen. I give the guy who ordered it a big Too bad some other guy lost his ass on the deposit.

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    I saw this car last weekend at Carrea Motors in Bend Or. On this car, orange works well with the all the black carbon fiber on it. But, any color would look good on this car.

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    Wow, love that color , would look great on my Boxster S as well...

    Is "Gulf Orange" the USA market name for the pearlescent metallic paint which was a standard color from about '99 til '03 ("rotorangeperlcolor" in German)?. It looks like it, but I thought it was called Zanzibar Red.

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    nope zanzibar red was basically guards red that had a bit more orange in it.

    gulf orange is something completely different.

    it is based on the colour scheme for the historical porsche racing cars sponsored by porsche, which were mostly blue, with an orange stripe.

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    here is a good pic of the famous 917 in Gulf sponsored livery:

    oh and heres a pic of zanzibar red:

    a little too much light in the pic, it is really just guards red with a bit more yellow/orange in it.


    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    My neighbor drives 996TT orange color and I must tell you this color is strange looking but really comes great during the night.

    That's "rotorangeperlcolor"! But what's it called in the USA? (Oops, sorry Lev, North America ).

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    Fritz,

    No idea, but let me tell you must be a brave men to drive Porsche with this color

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    Gulf Orange is just that... the color orange utilized by the gas company "GULF" whose color scheme is Orange, Blue, and White... hence those 70s cars were painted to match those colors cuz they were the factory team sponsors... like Mobil has been the sponsor through most of the 90s and even today.

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    VERY NICE . Gives the aggressive GT2 the right vibe. Blackening the wheel centers would complement the external carbon fiber and painting the sport seat backs orange would finish the interior since the orange stitching cries for it. Nice to see something other than yet another " resale silver " Porsche, MBZ, BMW, Audi ....
    Would make a timely Halloween gift to oneself !

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    Zanzibar red looks amazing!

    Re: "Gulf Orange" GT2 on Ebay. Crazy looking!!

    I've actually seen one here in Laguna Beach. Looks pretty nice.
