Obviously there will not be any body panels with rust since all fiberglass or composite. Exhaust is stainless - so should not be issues there. For other "metal" parts, best way is to put up on a rack. But doubt there will be anything of concern. Most don't drive these cars in the snow or salt covered roads if avoidable. Would just have a mechanic put on a rack (be careful not to damage rocker panels), and visually check it over.

Good point. Most northeast drivers do not drive Corvettes in the winter. I kept my 2013 coupe in storage in my garage from about Christmas to mid March in Doylestown, PA (SE PA). I now have a 2013 convertible and have moved to southern Delaware and drive it as long as no brine treatment is present on the roads. After a good rain the brine or salt is washed away. 

I agree that it would be a cheap insurance to have the undercarriage inspected on a rack.

Pay for a thorough inspection before purchasing.

Good point. An independent inspector will examine the car for condition and all systems, take photos, and provide a comprehensive report. Good insurance which will cost about $200.
