The 2013 San Diego International Auto Show runs Dec. 27-30 at the San Diego Convention Center.

This year’s exhibit promises 400 vehicles from 36 domestic and import vehicle brands. Porsche will return to the show after a brief hiatus, and Land Rover will exhibit for the first time.

The people staging the show promise 13 ride and drive events — a record number.

Show hours for Thursday, Friday and Saturday are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. On Sunday, the show runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Admission is $12, with discounts for military, seniors and children under 13.

The New Car Dealers Association of San Diego County presents the show.

Local artist Michael Leaf will be creating a work during the event. A silent auction of Leaf’s work will benefit the philanthropic group Las Patronas.
