Were you expecting Bob Lutz?

The first-ever Teslive conference for Tesla Motors enthusiasts will be getting a big of company star power when company chief Elon Musk comes to participate as its keynote speaker. The San Jose Mercury News says Musk will headline a two-date event starting July 12 that will take place about 10 miles down the road from Tesla's Fremont, CA, factory at the Crowne Plaza San Jose-Silicon Valley.

The convention, put on by the 6,000-member Tesla Motors Club (TMC), will charge $200 a head for attendees, who will have the chance to attend a party sponsored by the electric vehicle maker at its nearby plant. Last month, Musk was named by Time magazine as one of the world's most influential people.

      This a TMC event. Elon is keynoting probably to be nice. These people are mostly fans of him and the car. Any excuse to have a party.

      Terrific ! An car club with 6000 members, dedicated to a manufacturer of just one brand of car, and an EV at that ! Just a few years ago this would have seemed so far-fetched. It's great to see Elon Musk's Tesla Motors, certainly providing that sort of inspiration. This is not just good for Tesla, but EV's in general. Every true EV enthusiast should be queuing up to attend ! What a privilege to get to hear one of the most remarkable Americans of his generation speak. (something to tell your grandchildren) . $200 seems very reasonable.

      Oh Jeez. I don't know about this cult of personality. In general, it seems to be a bad thing. But it sure seemed to work for Apple with Steve Jobs. But then again, now that he is gone . . . Hmmm.
