One of our favorite quotes comes from the movie “Jurassic Park,” as it routinely proves true with concept and greenlit for production cars. In the scene, Dr. Ian Malcom (played by Jeff Goldblum) tells actor Jon Hammond (Richard Attenborough), “Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.”That’s the situation we have here with the 2 Series Gran Coupe and BMW’s quest to build a unique car for every single person on the planet.
Elevation starves automobile engines out of much needed oxygen. The lack of O at a mountain’s peak saps away power and when you need to spin all four tires at 14,000 feet of elevation, while sideways, power is absolutely necessary for drifting up Pikes Peak. With his crew of anti-social Hoonigans, Ken and the team however, calculated that the 845 horsepower in his all-wheel drive 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn wouldn’t be enough.
With the Frankfurt auto show behind us, auto manufacturers are looking to the approaching 2017 Tokyo Motor Show in late October, and eager to begin capitalizing on the upcoming media blitz is Subaru. It will be bringing two new STI models, an Outback Limited Smart Edition, a XV Fun Adventure Concept, an Impreza Future Sport Concept, and a more mysteriously named Viziv Performance Concept to this year’s show. The first two cars Subaru is showcasing are the WRX STI S208 and a BRZ STI Sport.
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".
