Identifying siding

I have "googled" siding until my head is spinning and cannot find a type that matches my siding.

This is on the side of my house, exterior front wall. The front of my house is not in the weather, we have a covered porch acroos the entire front.

I am needing to tear out part of this from prior water damage.

Got any ideas?

Identifying siding

Move away from the wall about 15 feet and take a photo. This ones too close.

Identifying siding

If this is installed vertically, it appears to be very similar to a masonite type siding used on mobile/modular homes. Readily available in 48" x 10 ft. and 12 ft. lengths.
