Buying a car that's stood for a long time

A local dealer has had a 2003 Hyundai Coupe 2.7 V6 on his forecourt for at least 12 months. It has done less than 30,000 miles, and in that time it has been reduced from £4995 to £3995. Would all this time of inactivity outside on a forecourt cause any problems?
Rusted discs, flatspotted tyres, wrecked battery, condensation damage.
