push button start?

I was just wondering if there was any plans for the camaro to get the push button start in the near future like the corvette has. I love the push button start and the idea of not having an actual key. Also i like how you can not lock you key in the car. That is a big pluss.

I was wondering the same thing, considering they are putting in the push starts on just about everything now (nissan, toyota, etc...) It would be one of those extra bonuses of making a revival of a classic, modernized. Just my .02

GM has been pretty open about what options they are thinking about adding and what options will appear at later MY's. Of the options they have told us about, push button start was not one of them. This doesn't mean that it won't be added later, just that they are not currently looking at adding it in the near future.

I think that if they were going to offer it they would have done it from the beginning, so I don't see it happening. I was little surprised they didn't offer it since the 2SS and 2LT are so heavily equipped. I locked my keys in my car a couple weeks ago; I wish I had a keyless ignition then!

From OPs 1st post in this line .. he was wondering about the near future not currently ..

I for one am dissapointed that it didn't come with keyless start / unlock etc .. my last 2 cars have had this and it is a very nice feature ..

No.

It's an intentionally retro design.

It seems like a cool idea but I dont want people doing what Clarkson did to Hammonds' Challenger when they went to the diner. Since Hammond was relatively close to the car in the diner he was able to get in, start it up and drive away only to let it stall in the street 20 feet away lol. In some cases a thief can have a tow truck or something and drive it right onto it.

If you look at the steering column, beside the ignition is what looks like a perfect place to add a push button. Its the oval flat area on the dash. Theres nothing there right now and seems like an awkward place to have that area with nothing in it.

If its so great why are all the corvette owners complaining about their batteries going dead if they don't use the car for a few weeks?
I'd rather have to turn the key in my car than put a battery charger on it everytime I leave the car sit in the garage for two or three weeks, and then have to remove it to drive the car again.
Be careful what you wish for...cause if you get it you might not like it. And problems like this have never been on the top of my wish list.
