Tesla's annual shareholder meeting will decide Elon Musk's future

• By Kirsten Korosec

Last week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk was bombarded with hundreds of questions from fans via Twitter — along with declarations of adoration and the occasional aspersions — ahead of the company's annual shareholder meeting on June 5th.

The questions ran the gamut: Will Tesla create an electric microbus? Will it participate in the Formula E all-electric race? Will there be a Tesla motorcycle? How about an electric barbecue that plugs into your Tesla vehicle?

Whether these quixotic questions are answered doesn't really matter, although it's likely that some will be. Musk has shown an affinity for questions that focus on Tesla's future rather than its present. Tesla's annual shareholder meetings have historically delivered informational nuggets on existing products and plans for new ones — much to the delight of its base of true believers. The meeting is scheduled for 2:30PM PT on Tuesday at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.
