It’s been years since we first heard of Porsche’s on-again, off-again 911 hybrid, and the model is no closer to production. Executives contradict themselves as they promise the model will make its official debut soon, and then announce it’s been put on an indefinite hiatus for various reasons. Comments coming straight from Porsche’s top executive shed the best insight yet into the 911’s electrification prospects. “With the 911, for the next 10 to 15 years we will still have a combustion engine.
It’s a good time to be a fan of high-performance cars. Tesla impressed many of us when it announced the next-generation Roadster, Dallara has introduced its very first street car, and Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) has just unveiled a sexy-looking coupe named 004S. SCG isn’t a household name in the sports car segment, but it has been making waves on and off the track for the past couple of years. Remember the 003 shown in Geneva two years ago?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. When we test a car, we examine numerous factors including performance, in-car tech, comfort, and value, but we normally leave looks alone. We’re conscious lines we go head-over-feet for could easily be considered offensive by someone else, and vice versa. Case in point – enough people like the Pontiac Aztek to warrant the creation of a fan club. We don’t hate it ourselves. The Acura ZDX, however – that’s ugly and a half.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
