The Lancia Thesis is an executive car produced by Italian automaker Lancia since 2001. It is available with naturally aspirated and turbocharged engines ranging from 2.0 L to 3.2 L, in both straight-5 or V6 configurations. The Thesis is based on the Lancia Dialogos prototype.

Thesis is equipped with 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic "Comfortronic" (not for 2.0). The interior is trimmed with leather or the suede-like Alcantara material long favoured by Lancia. At the 2004 Geneva Motor Show, an extended version (5,49 m) prototype was shown, made by Stola S.p.A. and named as the "Stola S85".

Despite extensive equipment levels, the Thesis has sold relatively badly, possibly due to its controversial styling, and the numbers are well behind its predecessor, the Kappa.
