Does it actually stand for anything? I thought that’s just the way it’s named.
(I thought TBM was like the car “Acura NSX”. Acura is the manufacturer, and the model is just NSX. I don’t think NSX stands for anything.)

I don’t remember, but for me it stands for The Best Machine

“TB” stands for “Tarbes”. It’s a city in France where Socata is located.
The “M” stands for “Mooney”.

Can someone post a link to why TBM is named the way it is? @Starley, do you have a link?

Proof that Starley is correct.
