The upper part, just from the photos, doesn't appear to be a "full red" lens, but a tinted one (or possibly one with thin strips), would that still be able to emit amber (or orange, in Nth America) light perhaps via a coloured bulb?

I've had a few problems where very bright sunlight bounces off the fluting of white lenses (front and rear) and even reflects back from the aluminum shiny bit inside, and it's difficult to tell if the turn signal is on until the car is at a different angle to the sun. Amber or red lenses don't seem to be affected by it.

White987S -- there are several European cars not sold in Nth America which have similar lenses, where the reversing lamp is on the nearside cluster and the rear fog lamp is on the driver's side. Unlike in Nth America, where by law two reversing lights are required by law, other countries allow cars with only one. The red tint is to make them look symmetrical, it doesn't appear to have adverse effects on the reversing lamp function.

Thanks guys...

Anyone happen to see a white 997 with the red lenses.?.

I think I still like the grey lines in my taillights, ties together with the grey side marker lights... Well with Atlas Grey anyway...
