The eagerly anticipated Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) earnings call for the fourth quarter and full year of 2023 is just around the corner, and investors are actively submitting questions for the upcoming Q&A session.
In customary fashion, Tesla is collecting queries from both individual and institutional TSLA shareholders through the investor communications platform Say. As of the latest update, Say's webpage dedicated to the Tesla Q4 and FY 2023 earnings call showcases a diverse array of questions. Topics range from inquiries about the next-generation vehicle and the progress of Giga Mexico's construction to details about Cybertruck reservations, automotive gross margins, and Elon Musk's social media commentary on his compensation plan.
Here are the top ten questions from individual TSLA investors currently listed on Say's platform:
Has the timeline for the production of next-generation compact vehicles in Austin improved, considering the shift in the start date?
Elon Musk has requested a 25% stake in Tesla. Will the Board of Directors contemplate a share buyback to facilitate this, and what would be the potential dollar amount?
What is the current status of Cybertruck orders, and when can all existing orders be expected to be fulfilled?
When is Tesla planning to commence construction on the Giga Nevada expansion and Giga Mexico, and when will each facility start producing products like the 4680, Semi, and next-gen vehicles?
What has been the primary obstacle to ramping up 4680 cell production to a rate of multi-million cells per week, and when is this milestone expected to be reached?
When will Optimus be deployed in Tesla's Gigafactories?
What are Tesla's key priorities for the year 2024?
When is mass production of the Semi expected to ramp up, and what are the current barriers to achieving this?
When can the public anticipate the rollout of FSD V12?
Why doesn't Tesla offer tiered pricing for Full Self-Driving (FSD), and would reducing the price for personal use increase adoption rates?

What are the company's expectations for automotive gross margins (excluding regulatory credits) for the full year?
Does Tesla anticipate a 50% volume Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) in either 2024 or 2025, and if not, what are the reasons?
Could you discuss the economics and attach rate of Autobidder, considering its significant trading profit for customers? How does Tesla participate in that value?
Instead of a new equity compensation plan, is there consideration for Tesla acquiring X, X.ai, and/or SpaceX to bring additional AI expertise into Tesla while enhancing Elon's voting control?
Given recent declines in residual value compared to the potential for future asset price appreciation with Full Self-Driving (FSD), should Tesla repurchase all used Tesla vehicles outside its existing inventory?
