If you want the car in your name it is possible to do without a visa. You will however need to have proof of address in Thailand. Not having a work permit / retirement visa etc means it is much more unlikely that you will get approved for finance through a dealer.

If buying in cash there is no problem, you can discuss with the dealer and they will assist you. If buying privately then be prepared to visit immigration or your embassy to get proof of address in Thailand to use when registering the car in your name
