Police have chased an allegedly stolen Porsche at speeds of more than 200km/hr from Forster to Raymond Terrace.

At about 1:30pm yesterday officers from Forster Traffic and Highway Patrol attempted to stop a Porsche Cayman on the Pacific Highway at Coolongolook near Forster after reports it was driving erratically. 

The car failed to stop and police initiated a pursuit with the vehicle hitting speeds of more than 200km/hr.
