Here is my best explanation:

'one may leave one's car here' is the definition.
The answer is a location as well as being a singular noun. This is suggested by the definition.

'a port possibly with card left on display inside' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite understand how this works, but
'a' is found in the answer.
'port' could be 'p' and 'p' is found in the answer.
'card' could be 'king' (king is a kind of card) and 'king' is found in the answer.
'left' could be 'l' (common abbreviation) and 'l' is found in the answer.
The remaining letters 'rot' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This explanation may well be incorrect...

'in' is the link.
