Lancias come in various sizes. For 2002-2009, there was a large (for Italy) sedan marketed as the Lancia Thesis, the subject of this post.
From the front wheels back, the Thesis was a conventional, even conservative design for the times. But the front end was unusual and distinctive. I don't know why it emerged from the styling studio they way it did, but am struck by its resemblance to the Lincoln Zephyr of the late 1930s.
