I think that if you don't want, a gasket shouldn't really be necessary... At high speed, the flow will see the transition as a bump, and it won't cause too much turbulence. Just make sure the leading edge of the tail is inset from the outer edge of the car by 1" or so, and you should be fine.

OTOH, why do it if you're not going to do it all the way?
