Forget Janis Joplin's psychedelic 356- it's Tura Satana's Porsche in "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" that I remember now when I think of mid-60s Porsches in the movies...
"Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" is a 1965 exploitation film directed by Russ Meyer.
Three thrill-seeking go-go dancers (remember go-go dances in the 60s)— Billie (Lori Williams), Rosie (Haji), and their leader, Varla (Tura Satana) — encounter a young couple in the desert while drag racing. After killing the boyfriend (Ray Barlow) with her bare hands, Varla drugs, binds, gags and kidnaps his girlfriend, Linda (Susan Bernard). It goes all down hill from there.
The film was shot in the extreme western parts of the Mojave Desert. However, some of the scenes appear to have been filmed farther east, near Baker, California.
However, while Tura had a non-Lucas equipped '64/'65 356, her sidekicks, Haji and Lori Williams, were forced to make do with less menacing British iron in the movie.
