Nogaro blue is an Audi colour, first used on the RS 2 iirc.
It was subsequently requested/used on a 993 GT2 and renamed Audi GT blue by Porsche :

Yes they are but they will have been paint to sample plus first ie I want the Porsche the same colour as my M3 etc.

I do wonder what the most bizarre item is that they have ever been given to paint match to hehe apparently you can do leather to sample too
Ah ok, that makes sense.

The brown ones are a bit suspect, one of them could be someones skidmark that he's getting royalties for! LOL
All power to that customer if that’s true hehe

LOL - This line cracked me up...

Also, aren't some of the colours other manufacturers have created. I'm sure a few in the Porsche PTS palette are BMW colours?
And this didn’t ?

Nogaro blue is a relatively new addition to the PTS list. It was put through the validation process at the request of a customer a couple of years ago.

This is my understanding of PTS. Someone asks for a new colour “to sample”, they pay for Porsche to do the validation of the colour, if it’s a success it gets added to the PTS list and made available to anyone that is prepared to pay for (and wait for) PTS.
indeedy. My understanding too, however it seems this PTS range is perhaps more of a release of historic colours and not solely as a result of that bespoke process.
From what I’ve seen the majority though I grant you, not all, are the former.

Wolverhampton have an Amethyst metallic 992 GT3 for sale, if that's of any help to Mr. RSVP911 and his quest for physical examples of colours.
