Hello, my name is Ely. Welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice; and (2) my function is to give you honest
information and not necessarily to tell you what you wish to hear. There may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies as I reply.
The answer is yes
. You do not have to be a resident to purchase a vehicle, or to register it in your name - plenty of people do this. So provided that you find one that you like and the dealer is willing to work with financing, this is totally possible.
However, note that California does not recognize an International Driving
Permit. This means that to drive it, you would need to get a California license (which you can, even if only on a visa).
