As in every 911, the electrically assisted power steering is as close to perfection as these systems get, spoiling the driver with excellent weighting and plenty of feedback from the front tires. Crank the wheel, and the 911 darts eagerly into corners. There is so much grip and it’s so easy to exploit without drama that you could twirl the Carrera around your favorite traffic circle at relatively high speeds until your stomach—or a passenger—begs for mercy.
Look no further than our own XE 35t R-Sport long-term test car. Combining the XE’s available 340-hp supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine, optional all-wheel drive (rear-wheel drive is standard), and the R-Sport’s blacked-out and more purposeful trim, it hews closest to the sporty sedan’s mission: chasing the BMW 3-series. Grabbing the V-6 jumps the XE’s base price by $6800, to $42,695; all-wheel drive and the R-Sport bits pile on another $10,000 for a total of $52,695 before other options are added.
Stifling the X’s weirder noises will be critical, because like the latest CX-5, the new 3—even in preproduction guise—is noticeably more hushed than its predecessor. A steady 115 mph on the autobahn sounded like 80 mph in our recently departed 2015 Mazda 3 hatchback. The interiors of the cars we drove were entirely unfinished and lacked trim, so no judgments can be made about quality or design.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
