The bodyshop attached to Porsche Chester OPC did a great job, painting my wheels to compliment my body colour. Have faith, the exact colour is documented and imo should be able to be matched with ease.

Ouch! Looks like the 21" Sport Classic?

Surely they can be got from Porsche Germany, as the wheels are a factory fitted option?

Maybe try asking another OPC (Porsche Centre)?

Any wheel repair specialist can match your paint code, just give it to them and you should have a perfect match. If you are really worried by a colour mismatch on the new wheel, why not have all 4 done, there is likely to be wheel repair specialist near you. You might as well go direct, ask your OPC who they use. Mine are now VG to match the car, a great job done by a local bodyshop.

The damage to your wheel does look bad, are you sure it could not be repaired?
My front rh wheel needs a minor refurb due to damage after a puncture, for a change from VG, I'll have all 4 done in Platinum Satin by the same business, all I need is the colour code. Total cost about £400.
