Why do I need insurance for a car I haven't purchased yet?

No, you do not need insurance for a car you haven't purchased yet. However, it is not a bad idea to get an insurance quote for a new car if you're pretty sure you want to move forward with that vehicle – this way you can factor in your insurance quote into your monthly budget. Insurance prices vary from car to car, so it's smart to shop around before picking one insurance carrier.
