Well you're wrong but the engine won't stall.
The lights will glow extremely dimly for a very short time and then either
the fan-belt will slip or the alternator/regulator will cease to function

Couple Nev's car engine to a several-thousand KVA alternator and try it
though and the engine will stop (or automatically up-power itself to cope).
