With an ENO hub and a few added parts this has turned the bike into a very neutral, instinctive handling trail bike.
My bad. The '92 Rockhopper Comp was actually Orange. But that year's Sport did come in red, although the catalog pic was purple. So I think your red is indeed a '92.

The frame should be the same throughout the line, the different levels would just signify better component spec. In 1992, there was the base Rockhopper, the Rockhopper Sport above that, and then the Comp at the top of the Rockhopper line.
