Hatchbox orange is a very close second in color. You can get it on amazon.com.

I just picked up PETG Prusa Orange and Black and I can confirm,
that colors are the same.
Only the orange is not so sorted on the spool like the black one (see photo below),
but who cares. It is a Prusa awesome orange!

I ordered my kit in black so I wouldn't have to bother finding any matching orange. Although there may be a subtle variation in black it won't look as noticeable as an off color orange.

My two spools of Prusa Orange turned up yesterday. Can confirm it is the real Prusa Orange and it is so much 'brighter' than the two spools of orange PETG I bought from Prusa before Christmas.

Currently printing Mk3 R2 upgraded parts as I have to strip my machine to replace the incorrect smooth rods, so I may as well bring it right up to current spec.

Does anyone know what temp should be used to duplicate the matte appearance of Prusa's orange parts? My roll of Prusa petg came in and I'm printing the updated X axis parts and they're shiny in comparison to the parts that came with the printer.

They just had more in stock today and I managed to get it ordered quickly enough to snag one and have it combined with the i3MK3 I ordered yesterday. I sold out in under 30 minutes!

I won't get it until July but if I remember I'll post up here with a comparison.

I'm sorry, I have already a new spool of Prusa Orange (a few days ago) and it is the same as previous one. The color still match with my MK3 from January 2018 and still easy to print (in compare with other brand PETG) like a boss, but it is because of colour, that can hide some imperfections.
And yes, it can be tricky to get a new one, because they are sold out really fast.
