924 Years of Production?

I keep seeing ads in the paper for late 80's 924s. I thought that the 924 was replaced by the 944. Were they produced concurrantly? What year did 924 production end?

the 924 was produced from the late 1970s right into 1988. They stopped importing the 924 into the US for 1983, the year of the 944's debut. In 1987, Porsche released the 924S for all world markets, a car that was basically the body shell of the 924 wrapped around the mechanicals of the early (pre-85.5) 944. This is probably what you've been seeing.
