Sorry for the delay incase anyone was interested, I have had it confirmed by porsche UK to be a genuine Le mans, However the dont list the interior colour code RP.
Also i still cant understand why it has a red stripe and not a Turquoise one.
See Pictures attached. Im wondering if there is a way of checking with Porsche AG if the Serial number means anything specific?
Any clues appreciated.

The Porsche centre wheel caps were definitely bare metal infilled with black paint. The two little holes that help you pull it off are set in the bars that are black. That way the holes are invisible. So someone painted those red. Do you think someone just replaced the turquoise stripe by the Le Mans lettering with a red bit of vinyl because they preferred it?

I see what you mean, Yes that is possible, i think i will peel a bit off to see. Only thing is the turquoise stripe usually has a matching interior, with turquoise piping. This has a burgundy interior, as if to match the stripe?

In that case it is definitely based on the American 924S SE and being RHD is a hybrid. The strange thing is that the carpets are sided and would have to be specially made to do the conversion. There was a 924 Weissach converted to RHD.
