The luxurious Porsche Paul Pelosi crashed while drunk in California could be yours.
Pelosi’s 2021 Carrera 4S appears to have landed on the auction site copart.com, with damage listed on its “sides” and “undercarriage”. The black sports car has an estimated retail value of nearly $170,000 with just 2,738 miles, according to the listing.
The car’s vehicle identification number is redacted in police reports and a Carfax history report on the VIN does not reveal the name of the car’s owner. But the Carfax report reveals the vehicle was involved in a ‘serious’ crash on May 28 – the day Pelosi crashed the car, Fox News reported.
According to the Carfax report, the vehicle suffered “frontal or side impact” damage, deployed its airbags and had to be towed during the incident.
Photos of the vehicle on the auction site show identical damage to the car as seen in photos released by police. Law enforcement also confirmed that the car was towed away after Pelosi was arrested for driving under the influence in their reports.
Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was the head of a dinner at his and Nancy’s $5 million vineyard, River Run, on May 28 when a 48-year-old man driving a 2014 Jeep rammed his Porsche into a dark intersection in Napa around 10:15 p.m. The other driver was injured in the accident.
Police say Paul Pelosi, 82, showed clear signs of intoxication at the scene, according to the criminal complaint against him. He could have reeked of alcohol, was unsteady on his feet and scrambled his words when officers arrived at the scene of the accident and found him sitting in the driver’s seat of his Porsche.
Paul Pelosi had a blood alcohol level of 0.082%, according to court documents, just over the 0.08% blood alcohol limit.
Dashcam footage released by the California Highway Patrol on Tuesday shows Paul Pelosi muttering to an officer that he had a “glass of champagne before dinner” and also “a glass of white.”
He also told officers he started drinking around 7 p.m. and quit about an hour later.
He pleaded guilty to DUI and was sentenced to three years of probation on Tuesday. The sentence also includes five days in jail, but he will be credited with four days and the other day will be served as a court work schedule, a judge said.
The multi-millionaire property investor and venture capitalist will additionally be required to take a three-month drunk driving course and an ignition interlock device will be placed on his car for a year.
A woman who answered the phone at the auction yard told Fox she had no additional information about the Porsche beyond its public listing. The cars auctioned at Copart come from both insurance companies and private dealerships, she told the outlet.
