Yes, there are no restrictions for foreigners who want to buy a vehicle in the USA. You just have to be able to pay for it.Check with your home insurance company and the auto club to see if they have a partnership with an auto insurance company in the USA. The dealership can also help with arranging insurance.Examples of nationwide US insurance companies are AAA, State Farm, and Allstate.

I have actually talked to German tourists that have done this...I don't know how they managed the insurance...but I guess if you paid up front for the insurance, that would be all that the ins company would be concerned with.
