Pics of SC with turbo flares no tail

Title says it all, I have a 78 SC and was wondering how a black SC with black Fuchs and rear turbo flares but without rear whale tail would look like.

Thanks

It would look awsome. I ran mine that way for a time before the 930 engine and monster wing were added. It makes the car look very wide and tastefully exotic instead of boy racer. I have a regular picture but nothing digital to download.

Honestlt that looks okay, but it is lacking without the tail. Unless one removed the front and back bumper and put on a nice molded one it just looks lacking. However once the other bumpers are added it would look much cleaner

I think it look great, maybe someone can photoshop the tails off of turbos for more angles. That would be easy and great.

One I was considering a while back.....

It's an M491 w/spoiler delete option.
Personally, I love the look!

about 2 or 3 years ago, someone in Europe posted their turbo body no tail car. It was a dark sage bluish green and was stunning. anyone else recall this car?

Personally, I think this is the best look for the turbo, like the car is crouching. I'd love to do an understated ST body, no tail in Heron Gray with brushed aluminum accents mixing industrial and romanic motifs.

"What do you mean, an IROC bumper??"

I mean the non-accordion style bumpers that we all have on teh SC's, The one that is more formed from a 964 or something like it. It's just my opinion, Other than that it's vry nice. But i do prefer the whale tails and they are really needed in order to prevent the pushing on turns. right?

The rear tail loads(reducing lift) on the rear. It prevents oversteer in the curves.
