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.
