I've seen more than one house where the panel was originally installed under the kitchen sink but one in particular, on a slab, panel under the sink, when the homeowner remodeled he simply moved the panel to the outside of the house and built a shed over it. Needless to say the shed had no floor and it was a damp location. But additionally, the roof leaked and water ran through the panel and rotted it out. The panel was not 3R, not weatherproof, not rated for an outdoor location. And the shed - essentially more of an outdoor "closet" - violated both illumination and the minimum clearance requirements. So, my opinion, definitely not legal (even if in a carport). I did a service change and relocated the panel; the homeowner removed the shed when he resided. In fact he changed that entire outside wall because of termite damage. .
