2009 TL spotted in Purdue, Indiana. Spy Phonetographer Captures the Moment

Thanks to TOV reader Josh Fried for submitting the following account and photos:

On a trip to Purdue, my father and I happened upon a car that was masked, not too smart to try and hide an engineering marvel by driving through one of the top engineering schools in the country. Around noon we spotted three cars and started to follow them, when they proceeded to split up, to try and distract us. After following one for awhile (it was obvious that they were irritated) we took a picture, got some video and left them to go on their way. Around 3, on the way to the Indianapolis airport, we caught up to them again. It was obvious that they didn't like us because the second I pulled up behind them they rocketed away to hide in traffic ahead. After searching your site we found out exactly what car it was and wanted to share our terrible pictures and video with you, hopefully you can put them to good use and let others see the new cars.

Thanks for the help figuring out what car it was,
Josh

P.S. Sorry for the poor quality, we only had our phones.
