I want to add a simple carport and patio cover to my home. There is no HOA for my neighborhood. Do I need a permit? Are there specs that must be followed?

Generally speaking, a permit is required. I am not sure if those tin metal ones require a permit however.

Yes, it will require a permit, if inside city limits, even the metal ones. As improvements to your property, they will also add to your property taxes, listed as "Carport" and "Porch" or "Covered Patio".

Check your HOA regulations as well, if applicable...

Cheers! M2
