i have 2 vines which look almost identical.
one is passiflora (possum purple)
leaves have a shiny appearance.
BUT, one i has , has a green stem/trunk
the other has a purple/red stem - trunk

i had bought some seeds a while back
but, google images show no purple stem,
leaf pattern is totally wrong.

PASSIFLORA -green stem

Looks like a Passiflora to me with those leaves and tendrils. As you say, it looks very similar to the one you know is definitley a Passiflora. I'm sure you know this already but Passiflora is the name of the Genus - there are many, many Passiflora species.
