Two New Spyshots of the 2009 Acura TL/TSX Mule
 Date: August 01, 2007 09:34

There seems to be some uncertainty concerning what exactly we're looking at in these pics, but for the most part we're pretty sure we're looking at an Acura sedan of some sort. While the '09 TSX is due to arrive ahead of the '09 TL, unless we're mistaken, we assume that development of the TSX is taking place overseas, while the TL's most likely being developed again right here in the U.S.A. So using that logic, it seems that the car that's been spotted during night testing is most likely the a test mule for the next generation TL.

It seems that the test engineers have upped the cloaking quotient on this mule, because the front 3/4 shot here reveals less than the KGP Photography pics over on worldcarfans.com. This new shot of the rear reveals a bit more than the blurry KGP photo, however, so it should fuel several discussions here.

By the way, Brenda's shooter also snapped a shot of an SUV test mule that may be the '09 Pilot, but it's so heavily cloaked it could be just about anything.
