I live "next" to the Atlantic Fooking ocean. Right now because the AC is not running and the windows are open I can tell you the seas are probably 2ft because I hear a steady static from that direction.
I have had 3 new cars kept outside for the last 32 years.
A 1988 Mitsubishi colt which I used and took to my Ocean Lifeguard job so it got it about as much "Salt spray" as any car could. After 10 years it had a light sheen of rust forming inside the top roof panel of the hatchback when I traded it in for a
1998 Nissan pick-up which never went inside, and 11 years later had rust only where I scratched the paint off of it from misjudging my ability to lift a sofa over the edge, and even then the scratch had been there for 8 years, and I never washed the truck more than once a year. it was white...nothing cosmetic even.
2008 Dodge Pick-up Still driving, no rust at all. It's sitting in the driveway. I did spray in Linex as soon as I bought it, but just because I did not like anything about any pop-in bedliner.
So what the hell? How far apart can two minds be? I'd never even answer a poll about, "Can a CT be realistically kept outside?"
Relax, bud. As I said In my post, I’ve never purchased a new vehicle, let alone paid anywhere near what I’m planning to pay for this one. Typically, when people purchase $50-70k vehicles, they don’t leave them sitting outside. Like many others, my garage simply will not fit the CT, so I thought I would check in to see if I’m a bit crazy to just keep it outside. I’m glad it sounds like many others will do the same.
It will just give my neighbors something to admire... or gripe about. 😂

Just turn the rest of your yard and house into a post apocalyptic wasteland and no one will complain about the CT. They will think it fits the motif very well.
