That color in europe is called blutorange (literally blood orange), and in the USA it is called tangerine. They are interchangable names for the color that is Porsche paint code 018.
There is another dark orange color called Continental Orange with a different paint code (I just don't know what the code is).
It's the color of the jagermeister 74 RSR racecar.
Your car sounds like it'll be beautiful either way, can you post any pics of her?
