Hooniverse Asks: What Car Has the Best Butt Face?

We human beings have a seemingly ingrained need to anthropomorphize just about everything, seeing human visages in anything from rock faces to wall outlets. Our automobiles are often designed to have a ‘face’ that engenders the car or truck’s personality, whether that be aggressive, or happy, or whatever the corporate marching orders deemed necessary based on the prevailing market research.
Perhaps less often planned is another face that some cars exhibit, and that is the butt face. What is a butt face? Well, its when the design of a car’s derriere resembles a human – or animal, or robot for that matter – face. One thing about the butt face is that once it is seen, it can never be unseen again.
The BMW i3 has a pretty good butt face, sort of disapproving and judgmental. It’s exactly what I’d expect of a BMW hybrid’s emotional palette. I don’t know however, if it’s the greatest automotive butt face. It’s a contender for sure, but the best? I just can’t say. What do you think, is there a better, more obvious one out there? What do you think is the car with the best butt face?

      I might be a bunny, or I might be a beaver, but I sure as hell don’t look like a Jaguar.

    The Audi Q7, I used to commute behind these with regularity and when the taillights are on, but the brakes aren’t being applied, it looks like an angry face from a Star Wars villain.

    I find this one is always good for a laugh in heavy traffic.

    The Miata’s butt is only mildly amused, unlike its overly amused front.

    Early Contours, in one of the higher trim levels that had the chrome strip in the bumper, looked like they were making a cross-eyed face at you.

      Obviously, a primitive robot needs a ‘stache.

    The rear of the ’59 Chevy used to spook me when I was a pup… scary!

      The rear of the 1960 Valiant was a close second:

        Remarkable styling on these cars. I love them, but they always look as if they are partially re-hydrated after being freeze-frozen.

    ’57 Cadillac has two butt faces, and they’re both very surprised.
