Heck, it's been a challenge just locating the factory PSS ZPs right now. I did manage to find a pair, but I almost had to settle for a very different tire. Nothing else comes close as far as tread sizing.
Tire tech does advance and the OTS PS4S has a better construction and compound that can rival bespoke PSS that used more targeted design to improve the performance for a given platform (quieter, stickier, etc...). I wouldn't bee too frustrated about putting a newer tire on. The new Cup 2s are faster than the older/current ones, there's nothing wrong with that.
