[VIDEO] The C8 Corvette's Secret 'Turbo Encabulator' Detailed

Before there was “blinker fluid”, “muffler bearings”, and “summer air” for your tires, engineers had their own inside joke known as the “Turbo Encabulator”. The legend of the Turbo Encabulator has been with us since the 1940s and over the years it has received several updates thanks to new technology.

Our friend Michael Brown offers up this humorous take on the Turbo Encabulator as it’s found on the C8 Corvette. If you think that engineers use mumbo-jumbo to discuss the latest technological feats, then this video is for you!

With tongue firmly-in-cheek, former Corvette Nation co-host, Corvette enthusiast, collector and producer/director of the Corvette documentary ‘The Quest,’ Michael Brown, takes on the fictitious persona of Automotive Engineer Claymore Meine. Updating a classic old bit on the ‘turbo encabulator,’ this short clips purports to ‘reveal’ the best-kept secret of the new 2020 mid-engine Corvette. In the end, the narrator gets a proper comeuppance.

It’s not the first time that the accomplished filmmaker has done a tongue-in-cheek sendoff on the new Corvette. Back when the 2009 Corvette ZR1 was first introduced, Michael offered up the All-Electric 2009 Corvette ZR1.

  1. Porsche is trying to convince everyone they have a Turbo Tacan electrified sedan. Hope someone tells them that is like turbo on a computer, the only thing you blow is a fuse!

  2. No one can deny that Hennesey can make Corvettes fast including the C8. But when will he made all the customers whole that have made the Internet over the years that indicate that co-mingling of funds and “borrowing” of parts from one customer’s car to fix another car was something that happened more than once? Part or an article exposing Hennesey mentioned a number of specific cases. Apparently, the further away the customer resided from his shop, the worse the service was and one customer in a foreign company said he lost thousands of dollars and a lot of time to Hennesey. He get his publicity out here about things like his numbers including taking a 184 mph Corvette, that some say is a 194 mile per hour Corvette and then coaxes 11 miles per hour faster top speed out of a C8. Takes twin turbos to get the job done. Now if his business practices matched his test numbers, perhaps he’d have a lot more credibility. He needs to answer all of the allegations and make his former disgruntled clients whole, if he wants potential customers to trust him again.
