Depends if the engine blows-up at the same time you are turning!

I guess it depends on the angle of the turn AND the speed.

haha, nice one, I think you have to hit a curb sideways going the right speed to flip your boxster over... Too slow and the car will stop, too fast the wheels break off.

I think if you just went sideways on an open flat land, the car would just slide around until it stopped. dont think it would flip over. If you went sideways off a track into dirt or grass then the probability of flipping is greatly increase due to the wheels digging into the ground. In that case, probably anything over 50 MPH would do it.

I can flip mine with my own hands.
Will be doing it weekly this winter to avoid flatspotting.
