Does color affect the resale value of a car?

I want to paint my car orange with a metallic sheen. Will it decrease the resale value because it's an unusual color?

“It’s good that you’re thinking about the resale value before painting your car.
Painting your car metallic orange can affect the resale price and make it more difficult to sell. There is a much higher demand for common colors, such as black, white, and grey, than for an unique colors.
While painting your vehicle orange may impact the value, it won’t impact your car insurance rates. Although it never hurts to shop around, you shouldn’t worry about a premium increase after painting your car.
If you think you’re overpaying for your current policy, it might be time to switch insurance companies. Try using the Jerry app to help you save time and money. Jerry compares quotes from 50 of the top providers and delivers the best deals to your phone for free.”
