FB. Link in post #6 (click on the "f").

Both NA and AlfaRomeo.it configurators are not showing this wonderful and desirable color (yet)! Do you have a selling-side link which has this option anywhere?

Understand there are multiple peeks... and I do have NA Marketing materials that confirm 2H 2021 availability plans.

An Ocra GT Junior QV will be mine! Too bad no Q4... oh well.

Looks like AR needs a proofreader. Last time I looked "Orca" was a whale.
I noticed that and wondered whether "ochre" was deemed too challenging a word for Americans.

I hope Alfa Romeo never builds a whale. We can trust BMW and Mercedes to do that.

I think it is a lost in translation spellcheck issue. Ochre in Italian is Ocra. But a English spellchecker would have flipped that to Orca.

I thought about that, too. Someone at Alfa Romeo should really know better. Manual override time.

Well I thought it was ocher not ochre or ocra. "The web" seems to agree.
Then I thought it was a vegetable from Africa that I don't like to eat, but that is Okra.

OCRA: Orthogonal Challenge Response Algorithm (same as multi-factor authentication?)
also OCcupational Repetitive Action; something that happens a lot at a car factory.

Anyway, I guess Ocra or Ocher sounds better than "rust", which is literally the original source of this color.

I think Ocra is Italian for Ocher.

Wouldn't an Orca color car be black and white camo? Hmmm, might sell...

I love the color but the name is ridiculous.

The original Giallo Ocra color from the late '60s and early '70s was available on the 1750 GTV, and later the 2000 GTV, in addition to the smaller-engined GT Juniors.

So the logic of naming the color after the GT Junior, which was basically a way around displacement-based taxes in Italy and elsewhere in Europe, is curious to say the least...

I fear I may have done a disservice by using the absurd name from the Facebook post in the thread total.

Some very funny word challenge comments here. Ochre/Orca/Ocra/Okra. Is it a paint, whale or vegetable? Lol.

Bottom line though, an awesome color that really stands out. Can’t wait to see it in person.

Great comments in the vid about the autonomouse driving which I would rarely use but glad they added it.

I like your spelling of autonomous. The system works well but only on certain roads.
