Default Sleeper Scoobies

I want to see sleepers. I know Scoobies are hard to make look dosile, but I want to see something that looks ordinary but will embarrass most cars on the road. Wingless, scoopless come one come all

NON Subaru content welcome if it is cool/rare/crazy

nor should your car have any kind of lip, flashy wheels, large exhaust, loud bov, etc.

its a car that should look somewhat ****ty or stock, and put down stupid power, or track numbers.

Isn't a "sleeper" as sleeper for the reason that there's nothing to look at? Sure you can see what's under the hood but...???

I think a sleeper is something that someone who doesnt know much about cars would look and consider it an ordinary car. Whereas someone who knows a lot about cars will see hints that would give away that the car is a rocket.

Most people see a hood scoop and huge wing and think its fast whereas wingless and scoopless most people would think normal impreza but its packing a 35r or h6 setup with an intake that causes a serious threat to squirrels and small children on the sidewalk

yeah, this will be a thread of mostly stock looking cars --- but regardless it's still pretty amusing to see examples of stock looking cars that really have 600hp.

people dont know what a sleeper is apparently... an sti with stock rs trim or something along those lines with 600+ hp would be somewhat of a sleeper..... a stock looking wrx with an h6 would qualify as well..... but this whole thread is kind of stupid for any 02+ subarus because they dont seem like they would be slow. old ass wagons and stuff would probably fit the title, but thats about it.

its a car that should look somewhat ****ty or stock, and put down stupid power, or track numbers.

this car for instance is a stock looking eclipse spyder, albeit posesses a 10.88 @ 133 1/4

No meth needed, downstroked motor has lower compression. I just started recently mixing in some 110 cause the gas station 5 miles from work sells it at the pump and who doesnt like smelling race fuel all the time

Daily driver has 130k on it now. just hit it on the way home yesterday.

My sleeper - purposefully built to be a sleeper.

Knocking on 120mph traps.. Scraped an 11 with a soft launch (still on stock trans last time at the track).. Obviously capable of solid mid 11's.

No exterior mods - No FMIC - stock rims. And this weekend I will be getting rid of all of my DEFI gauges.

Exhaust was a tanabe gold medallion blue-flame potato shooter.. Hacked that ricer can off and tossed it in the dumpster.. Tucked in a magnaflow offset-center oval can with a 3" turndown - all painted flat black.

68HTA on e85 running 26-28 PSI daily.

Sleeper is something that your average car guy wouldn't think is fast - and then turns out to be fast.. (And by average car guy I mean gearhead)

(Fast isn't scraping 12's)

An sti would have to be a 10 second externally stock appearing to be really sleeper in my opinion..

WRX's are slow.. Takes less to really be a "sleeper"

Aftermarket rims / flashy exhaust / FMIC all ruin the whole sleeper look.
