The colors, as I recall, are Gulf Blue and Gulf Orange. Seriously.

Olyblau is not all that far from Gulf Blue, but is more turquoise I think. (A little tiny bit greener.) I don't recall any of the stock oranges quite matching the Gulf Orange, but Signal Orange would probably be close-ish.

I think that in 1972 (maybe later as well) Porsche had two special order colors named...

Gulf Orange 019
Gulf Blue 328

Searching on PPGs site...
http://www.ppgcarpaint.com/

I was able to find these codes (first is porsche color, second is PPG code)...

Gulf Orange 019 60690
Gulf Blue 328 POR328

Don't know if those accurately match up to the colors used on the race cars.
