The 912 isn't a car for novice drivers - the gearbox is tricky, the unassisted brakes are heavy, and steering at low speeds is a workout. However, for those that enjoy the activity of driving and are willing to work for their fun the 912 will not disappoint. I took her on an extended Sunday drive and she ran like a top the entire time.
Ronan was also an excellent host - we spoke over the phone prior to the rental to discuss some of the quirks to expect and things to plan for and he took the time to take me for a quick drive and ride with me a bit to get me familiar with the car. I would happily (and likely will) rent from Ronan again.
