The Rabbit Returns

Like magic, VW’s Rabbit is back, popping up around town on those green posters and billboards. Even more impressive is that VW has chosen to preserve the Rabbit logo, which as you can see, is only a slightly streamlined version of the original (on the left), designed by David Epstein in 1975.

CarType has more information about the Rabbit (and CPB’s cheeky bunnies-plus-rabbits tie-in) and the VW logo’s dubious origins.

Thanks to Heather Strelecki for the assist.
