Has anyone ever seen a factory metallic orange 986?

I saw this car locally and wondered if anyone else had seen a factory orange car?

That looks REALLY good.... as long as it's got a black interior. Any other colour would be a devil to match the orange.

That is Zanzibar; a Carrera GT color. A Chicago PCA member has (had) one in that color and looked very good in person. Here's another look on a GT3:

I saw this one at Laguna Seca last month. It was gorgeous. The pic doesn't do it justice.

Hey that orang car with the custom numbers is mine

Neat to see someone else put up a pic of my car. I believe the color from the factory was Zanzibar or burnt orange Mica.

Thanks again!
