The model will provide the headline lot of the Driven By Disruption sale in New York on December 10. It's expected to make in excess of $400,000.

Joplin's brother Michael told the Guardian newspaper: "Like most people and their car of choice, her Porsche is a direct link to Janis.

"She drove it everywhere … with the top down and her feathers flying. Her music, life and car are a part of rock'n'roll history."
