Underrated But Overpowered: 2009 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B

This next car comes as a tip from Art C who writes: This is a great DD sleeper… lots of high quality parts.. for some reason the spec-b’s don’t get the big $$ the STi’s do, but they are 90% the drivers car, just a little softer and easier to live with every day. I have a feeling you could buy this, drive it 10k mi/yr, keep it in good shape, and sell it in a couple years for what you paid for it. Find this 2009 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B offered for $10,500 in Newburyport, MA via craigslist.
