WEST VANCOUVER, B.C. - A pack of Porsches was caught speeding on a highway north of Vancouver over the weekend and the drivers didn't get only tickets, they've lost their luxury wheels for a week.

West Vancouver Police say four Porsches were pulled over on the Sea to Sky Highway on Saturday by a single officer.

The officer had tracked the vehicles travelling up to 131 kilometres an hour in an 80-kilometre zone.

The Porsches have been impounded for a week and each driver was handed a ticket for $368.

Police say just a week earlier, the same officer issued warnings to members of a Porsche Club telling them the danger of speeding in the area.
