    That's some amazing stuff! However, I have to wonder about their one-manufacturer decision.

    "Then the Bose Lexus rushed up to a curb in the middle of the lot and jumped through the air, hurdling it neatly. The crowd roared. The driver got out and bowed. The empty car next to him bowed, too. Body pitch (and its opposite!) on demand, as it were. The wonders of mathematics."


    what the hell does that mean haha there car can hop over curbs?

    That's brutal....

    How can they possibly compete with other companies who've been doing it for so much longer?
    It reminds me of when I heard Pontiac was entering D1, or Toyota trying F1.

    Of course its smooth compared to the porsche, sporty suspension is not supposed to be comfortable.

    Sorry I haven't reread it since posting, but isn't this suspension supposed to behave like a sport suspension?

    I think the entire purpose of it is to be adaptive. The so called "sporty" suspension of the porsche wouldn't do much while trying to turn on that bumpy section in the video. Sport suspension is only stiff out of necessity to limit body roll. This BOSE suspension limits body roll actively rather than passively. It will be as stiff and as soft as it needs to be to 1)absorb the bumps 2)keep the body level and 3)keep the tires in contact with the road surface as much as possible.
