Stefan Nils Edwin Johansson (born 8 September 1956 in Växjö, Kronoberg County, Småland, Sweden) is a Swedish former racing driver who drove in Formula One from 1980 to 1981 and from 1983 to 1991, scoring 12 podiums and 88 points.

Johansson started his career with two races with the Shadow team in 1980, failing to qualifying both times; in 1981 he was entered at the British Grand Prix, but he did not race. He returned in in mid-1983 with Spirit, scoring no points. Replaced at Spirit, Johansson was left without a drive for 1984. Mid-way into the season, he joined Tyrrell to replace the injured Martin Brundle. After Tyrrell were banned, Johansson replaced the injured Johnny Cecotto at Toleman.

For 1985, Johansson continued his career in the same vein, as a replacement at Tyrrell, this time for the suspended Stefan Bellof. This lasted just one race as René Arnoux's sacking at Ferrari meant the Swede got a drive at the Italian team that lasted two seasons. Unfortunately, Johansson was deputy for Michele Alboreto and was unable to score any victories, but six podiums showed it wasn't a fruitless effort, but Johansson was replaced by Austrian Gerhard Berger at the end of 1986.

Johansson moved to McLaren for 1987. Perceived by some as a stop-gap signing before Ayrton Senna was to join the team, Johansson scored five podium, but a victory still eluded him.

Unable to secure a top drive for 1988, Johansson moved down the grid and joined Arnoux, the man he replaced at Ferrari, at Ligier. Johansson had a disappointing season, finishing only four times and scoring no points. Taking a risk in 1989, Johansson joined the new Onyx team, scoring his final podium after an audacious strategy worked out the Portuguese Grand Prix. Johansson left after a fall out with new owner Peter Monteverdi and was sacked after two non-qualifications in 1990.

Johansson's final F1 season saw him drive twice for AGS and four times for Footwork, only qualifying once.

Johansson moved into IndyCar racing post-retirement, but was not successful. Johansson finally found success in Sportscar racing, winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1997 with former teammate Alboreto and Tom Kristensen.
