I have owned many cars.
"Had" is ambiguous, but in the context is assumed to mean "owned." The speaker is claiming to have owned many automobiles in the past. The sentence makes no comment on whether the speaker currently owns any cars.

It means the person claims to have switched cars a lot of times, rather than keep every one of them for a decade or more.
It does NOT mean (s)he had a lot of cars at the same time. That would be expressed by "I used to have a lot of cars"

Over the whole period of their life, they have owned many cars.
The use of 'have had', the Present Perfect, implies that EITHER they still have one or more cars, OR that they have only recently got rid of their last car.
