Hello,

- '76/77 whale tail: Are there any good giveaways that tell an aftermarket item from a factory part?
-- like Porsche -logos or part-numbers somewhere?
--- For example, later ('78 tail) has a logo in the rubber, it is visible when one looks the tail from behind, and from a low angle
- '76/77 whale tail: Is my '76 car good with any of the '76/77 whale tails? (ie. are there differences within the 3.0 turbo tails?)

- What material is the original tail? Steel? Plastic? Fibreglass?

- Have noticed some tails have 2nd grille size or location different

Have now searched classifieds, and perhaps there are some early tails that are still available. Good thing is, I believe the 'early whale tail' has not been that desirable, not something that folks would upgrade to (like say 9" Fuchs). Many have swapped them for later model, to fit an intercooler. (like on my car). Difficult to say where my original tail currently is, maybe travelling on an SC that has come without whale-tail from factory..
