Porsche 911 Demos KW Automotive’s Innovative iSuspension Software
KW’s iSuspension, a wildly innovative software system designed to control a vehicle’s chassis set-up from an iPhone, is showcased on the Porsche 911.
KW replaced the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), as well as the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) systems with the iSuspension interface, and added 20-inch wheels and a new set of springs. A WLAN module, networked with iSuspension, was fitted to the 911 Carrera S, with which the driver was able to select either Comfort, Sport, or Sport+ suspension modes. There is also the capability to pre-set up to five custom modes as well.
This advancement makes adjusting the chassis set-up a breeze, and choosing to demo the new software on the Porsche 911 shows just how well-respected the performance capabilities of the Porsche really are. By all accounts the demo was a huge success.
KW Automotive is a world-class designer and supplier of the highest quality tuning parts for a wide range of different vehicles and automakers. Known particularly for their suspensions, which are built for high-performance race cars as well as daily drivers, the German company knows a thing or two about adjustable suspensions.
KW’s Dynamic Damping Control coil cover, along with their Electronic Control Unit, enabled one of the first aftermarket adjustable suspensions. The iSuspension app, which can be downloaded to an iPhone or iPad, allows drivers to make adjustments on the fly, in real time, for the ultimate in fine-tuned performance.
