Janis Joplin: 1965 Custom-Painted Porsche to be auctioned at Sotheby’s in December
The Porsche is expected to sell for more than $400,000, Reuters reported. The multicolored Porsche is painted with butterflies and a portrait of Joplin and her band members.
Janis drove the Porsche with a tombstone from San Fransico to her idol’s grave, Bessie Smith. She cleaned up the site and marked the grave with the tombstone. It is in a little cemetery near the Philadelphia airport (PHL) — Oaklawn Cemetery on Hook Road in Darby.
