Yes, but most states require insurance before you can register or license the car.

Expanded Answer

The individual states, almost unanimously, require licensed drivers to carry a certain level of liability insurance. But I do not know of a state that requires proof of insurance as a condition of mere ownership of a motor vehicle.

This issue has come to the public eye in recent months because of comparisons between state requirements for automobile liability insurance and proposed federal requirements for health insurance. It is claimed by advocates of federally-imposed health care insurance that the mandate is similar to that imposed by most states with regard to automobile liability insurance.
