As we enter the fifth year of the revolutionary eighth-generation Corvette, enthusiasts who use their C8s as daily drivers should become very apparent (or that rare occasion when one lands as a rental vehicle). This 2020 Stingray with 98,252 miles was posted recently on Facebook and has stirred up quite a range of comments.

There’s also a bit of a mystery surrounding this high-mileage C8, as it originally popped up for sale at a Copart auction, a venue historically reserved for damaged/salvaged vehicles (and where insurance companies send vehicles deemed as a “total loss”). After a quick glance at the Copart website, it does appear they are trying to shed that reputation, though.

First, let’s take a look at the C8 that’s about to hit the 100k club and then the high-mileage C8 market as a whole.
