Not really... there's a distinct difference between the WRB and the Galaxy Blue that Subaru offer, for instance, despite them both being "blue" with a different tint. Blacks are probably the easiest to match, but even then there are occasionally discernible differences.

The FR-S white is close enough to Toyota's Blizzard Pearl that 99% of people will think they are the same color. I have a Blizzard Pearl Prius v and a Blizzard Pearl 4Runner. There are 2 white FR-Ss that I park beside at work and the colors are very close. I haven't studied them in dusk or dawn, though, like Veloist has, though. My Blizzard Pearl really changes when the light gets low.

I actually prefer the Prius pearl. I think it's gorgeous. All this time, i thought they were the same. But who here owns a white prius and a white frs to juxtapose and compare/contrast?

@Veloist, Thanks! That really helps!
Look at the license plate. Letterings still white. Its actually quite accurate. When i parked next to my buddies 2013 white genesis coupe during the "golden hour" of sunset i notice how yellow it was compared to the perfectly white genesis.

The Red FRS is a hair darker than the Lightning Red BRZ(I parked next to one so I know). Even though they are both built in Gunma, they are not the same color..

And why do you care if the FRS uses the same paint as a Prius? If you dont want to look like a Prius go buy a WRB BRZ.
Actually they are both c7p. In my ppg mixing system every frs/brz color that looks like its the same between the two, are the same between the two. For each paint code I enter it lists it as the Toyota name as well as the Subaru name. But both have an identical ppg mix number. When i mixed asphalt gray (61k) to paint my spoiler it 100% cross referenced with the Subaru gray name (still 61k paint code)

When I had my Tacoma I wish I had waited a year to get it in Desert Sand instead of the silver I got it in originally.
