Questions About variform siding

I recently purchased a house and need to replace a section of vinyl siding. (see below)?

I tracked down the company from taking it off the house to Variform. However this company no longer makes this siding. People who have it in a box want to charge $180.00 a box for it. All I need is one section. It comes in a savana blue. I tried GP (george pacifc) however it is too dark. I really just want the colors to match. Do you guys know about painting it or what..... What would be the normal route from here. I don't want to take any from the back of my house either....... I was also told that other companies may not interlock with my siding. GP may not overlap variform......
