Janis Joplin’s Psychedelic Porsche is Headed to Auction
Rejoice flower children, here's your chance to own an iconic and psychedelic vehicle. The 1965 Porsche 365c 1600 Cabriolet that Janis Joplin owned and drove from '68 until her death is headed to auction.
The auction will take place in December as part of Sotheby's "Driven By Disruption" sale which will feature 30 creatively-styled and pioneering motor cars and select automotive-themed artwork.
The Porsche that is expected to go for $400,000 was originally pearl white. When Joplin bought it secondhand she had it painted to depict the "History of the Universe" with images of butterflies and jellyfish along with her and the band.
