Ummm, that is the "original." It actually flew in that configuration; it has not been retouched in any way.

Yes, it has... the vertical stabilizer has been "painted" out. Note that it's also called a "photo visualization."

AFAIK, the X-31 was flown with the vertical tail physically on, but actuators disconnected.
