Does every car have a differential?

Yes, although depending of whether you have a front wheel or rear wheel drive, the differential will be set up differently. A differential is just a set of mechanical gears that equalizes the power between the left and right drive wheels, particularly when cornering, when the outside wheel travels further than the inside wheel. It depends on whether or not your car needs a differential. Nascars do not have a differential because those cars always turn in one direction throughout the race. Gokarts (yeah, I know,they aren't cars) do not have a differential.

What happens if you take the differential out?

Literally you'd have no drive to the wheels. If you mean a drive-train without differential gearing, as can be effected by use of a 'diff-lock', both the driven wheels would rotate at the same speed making cornering on hard surfaces seem 'funny', e.g. 'understeer'. It would also cause much more tyre wear on the driven wheels.
