If their mass is small enough, off-shell neutrinos could make their way from CERN to Gran Sasso faster than light, but this cannot explain the OPERA experiment because the energy scale is wrong. Deformation of the wave-packet from interference effects between mass eigenstates, also results in superluminal propagation for certain very narrow energy ranges, but this effect is also far too limited to explain OPERA .
