As a tourist in Phuket, can I buy and register a car in my own name?

Yes you may. To do this you need to bring to us your passport with a valid visa in it and an “address confirmation paper”, as well as all the normal papers for the transfer of ownership.
The address confirmation paper is a document confirming your address in Thailand. It can be obtained from the Phuket Provincial Immigration Office.
