Potentially, many although the potential will be limited by the number of cells.

Show the battery and then we can tell you about its amps or go to a Sears automotive store and read the ampere capacity of the batteries on their shelves.

The question is meaningless: The output current depends on the load. A decent fully charged car battery can deliver its cold cranking current, which is often more (much) than 500A, but it can't do it for very long.

+1 ;-) I would add; it depends on the battery and its amp hours both, the cold cranking amps and its amp hours should be on the battery. Google the battery.

Car batteries are like lightbulbs: They come in all sizes and power levels.
You might notice once you start training for your drivers license or when visiting a shop that sells car batteries ;)
