Hello All,
I am pleased to inform you that I will be making a trip to pick up this 2017 paint to sample Macan GTS, which I intend to drive back to San Diego tomorrow. The car is currently showcased at the dealership and a video clip of the same is attached below. I would like to express my gratitude to the Macanforum community for extending their support & wisdom in assisting me with the selection process of potential Macans. Your support is much appreciated.
Thank you all.

Thank you, I was worried that it will be too bold, I think I am getting used to it.

Beautiful color...congratulations! I am partial to fun colors for Porsches, but the Lava Orange is really stunning. I have seen it on 911s. Enjoy!

It appears that you have gone Green :). I recall discussing my pursuit of a green Macan in a previous thread here, which was had a paint-to-sample finish according to the build sheet. However, the specific shade, whether it was Python or Viper Green, remained undetermined due to the deal falling through prior to confirmation.

Hey, be nice! I will admit the Orange is pretty cool! View attachment 268781
This is a striking vehicle indeed. A GT3 RS would undoubtedly make an impressive statement in any color, but the color red particularly complements it well.

Sorry Austin.....wasn't trying to hurt anyone's feelings. Your car is obviously fantastic looking too but I guess I was drawn to the unique color on that Macan! FYI back when Audi introduced the Q8 in Dragon Orange I thought it was a fantastic looking car but my wife wouln't have anything to do with an orange car! Maybe she's right?

I would not buy a SUV in orange myself but I have to say that Lava Orange looks a thousand times nicer than Papaya. I sae several Papaya Macan Base at my dealer as they use as loaners and the orange looks like a burnt orange with way too many sparkles on the paint. Again, it is personal preference but I think Lava is the way to go if you want something different. Now, I can鈥檛 understand why so many orange cars have red break calipers. That鈥檚 not a good color combination.
