Changing the exterior wall siding

The owners would like to redo the exterior siding and restore their house's original flavour. What should the current vinyl siding be replaced with? Furthermore, can the useful enclosed porch be preserved?

By removing the old sidings of the porch and the house, the whole can be redone in uniform fashion. As most of the houses in the neighbourhood are lined with cedar shingles or horizontal wood panelling, these types of siding are preferred choices to maintain harmony.
