Hey guys .

Does anybody know about the type of car suspension in porsche 911 ?

I wanna analyse the forces on its suspension , So i have to know that it's active ,semi active or passive suspension ?
Can I choose one of them arbitrarily?

"Proper" Porsche 911s have torsion bar suspension with telescopic dampers, this is a passive system.

Well, it doesn't have a coil spring. Like I said, it's a torsion bar arrangement.

You could try getting in touch with Porsche for that kind of technical information.
