EXCLUSIVE: Paul Pelosi’s 2021 Porsche Carrera, destroyed in a May car accident in California that he pleaded guilty to Tuesday, is listed on an online auction site.
Photos on the Copart.com auction site show a 2021 Porsche Carrera 4S with damage to the “side” and “chassis”.
It has an estimated retail value of nearly $170,000 and only 2,738 miles on the odometer.
Pelosi’s vehicle identification number has been redacted in police reports and a Carfax vehicle history report on the VIN of the car for sale does not show the owner’s name.

However, the Carfax report shows a “serious” accident on May 28 – the day of Pelosi’s crash – in which the vehicle sustained front or side damage, deployed the airbags and had to be towed.
Police photos and reports of the incident show identical damage at the crash site and the vehicle being auctioned, and indicate it was removed from the scene by a tow truck when police took Pelosi into custody.
The most recent mileage record on the Carfax report, dated January 2021, showed it had only 18 miles on the odometer just days before it was sold to its first owner.
CALIFORNI PROSECUTORS ‘CAR GENERATED’ ERROR, ‘BOILERPLATE’ LANGUAGE FOR PAUL PELOSI DRUGS ATTITUDE
According to police reports, a drunk Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, drove in front of a jeep at a dark intersection on May 28, resulting in a crash that left both vehicles off the road near the intersection around 10:15 p.m. from California Route 29 and Oakville Cross Road.
When officers arrived, they noticed “objective” signs of intoxication, including Pelosi’s slurred speech and the smell of alcohol on his breath.
One officer wrote that he saw Pelosi “take his wallet out of his pocket and rummage through it”. Then he handed the officer a California driver’s license and an 11-99 Foundation card.
Foundation 11-99 is a California Highway Patrol Charity that supports officers and provides scholarships for their children.
“I asked if the extra card was a work identification card, and he stated it was his ‘driver’s license,'” the officer wrote in an incident report.
In dashcam video first obtained by Fox News Digital on Tuesday, one officer can hear another tell that Pelosi was “constantly gripping the patrol car to keep his balance”. At the same time, Pelosi can be seen walking in front of the camera with his hand on the front push bar of the vehicle.

Pelosi told officers that he started drinking around 7 p.m. and around 8 a.m.
The other driver was identified only as John Doe by prosecutors. Both men refused on-site medical treatment, but Doe told Napa County prosecutors on June 2 that he began to experience pain in his right arm, right shoulder and neck the day after the crash.
Pelosi was photographed with bruises on his hands and forearms, but police documents show that at least some of them had nothing to do with the crash.
Chairman Pelosi’s office has previously said it will not comment on the incident, which a spokesman said happened while she was on the other side of the country.

A man who answered the phone at the tow company that removed Pelosi’s car from the accident scene said it was common for insurance companies to pick up cars from the parking lot, but said he didn’t know where they would go from there.
A woman who answered the phone at the auction site said she had no information about the vehicle outside of the public offering. The cars auctioned on Copart come from both insurance companies and private sellers, she said.
