KW Showcases iSuspension on Porsche 911

Technology / Comments

Want to control your chassis setup from your iPhone? KW has you covered with its iSuspension system.

"Make the suspension adjustable and they will adjust it wrong." That's what Lotus founder Colin Chapman had to say on the subject, but still there are many who want to be able to calibrate the chassis on their cars themselves. But with the latest development in adjustable suspensions, you won't have to get under the car with a screwdriver to do so. The technology in question is called iSuspension, and it comes from the German chassis gurus at KW Automotive.

With its new software system, you can adjust the setting of your car's suspension right from your iPhone. KW is demonstrating the tech on a new 991-generation Porsche 911 Carrera S, replacing the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) systems. Networked with a WLAN module fitted to the car, the driver can select from Comfort, Sport or Sport + modes, or fiddle around with individual calibrations and save up to five custom setups. KW also gave the Carrera a new set of 20-inch wheels coated with Pirelli PZero rubber - and, of course, new springs. (It is KW, after all.)
