I see it this way, my rules of esthetics...:
a) Targa, never add any tail, ridiculous
b) Cabriolet, never add any tail, even more ridiculous
c) Coupé, only Turbos and these rare 3.0 Carreras deserve a whaletale, the rest may be good with a ductail, most though better not, depending on car's style

Tails

It 'completes' the car in my opinion. Aside from aerodynamics, that's why the factory offered them as options as well.

I'm a fan of "factory correct". Since my car came from the factory with the front and rear spoilers I like to keep it that way. I like the look with (iconic) and without.

Debating whether to ad a pricey Whaletail or not.

In my best Aussie accent
"That's not a tail, this is a tail"


All Carbon fiber too, weighs nothing and the downforce is palpable

This is the third tail on this car, light and effective, though not as effective as a wing

My new to me 1988 Grand Prix White 911 CAB came to me with a very nice 930 OEM turbo tail and deck lid.

Its coming off and no tail (no third tail light) going on. 930 turbo tail and deck complete if for sale.

Couples I like the carrera tail or duck. Nothing for me on a cab.

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy car parts which is kind of the same thing.
