Per SC365, the ACO are considering dumping their current pit stop format in favor of adopting IMSA regs or maybe old ALMS regs.

LMP1 should have rules that would make customer cars an option again. Have OEMs building cars that customer teams car buy and run. OEMs could still run their factory teams. That way private teams could get some competitive cars, an LMP1 program would make more sense in financial terms for OEMs, and the class would have more cars.
Probably would need more then one series to run them in to be financially viable, but otherwise that seems like a solid proposal.

Would indie teams be producing a LMP1 racer with road car origins / looks? If so what would the motivation be? Perhaps they would, just thinking out loud.

That was my guess too. Reports over the years confirmed interest for entering LMP1...Heck and if future regs are aligned with road car styling, well then... There was also reported from interest from Subaru. Both fit the definition of a manufacturer never having raced Le Mans

Ohh that's somewhat disappointing but good to see them still in business, and seemingly qualifying as low-volume manufacturer

Vasselon: “Positive Momentum” for GT-Styled LMP1 Proposal.
The FIA and ACO are due to release guidelines for the proposed 2020/21 rules next month, with a recent proposal for production-car inspired LMP1 cars appearing to be the favored option among manufacturers, including Toyota.
The Japanese manufacturer has been among the half-dozen automakers that have been involved in recent meetings, included representatives from McLaren and Ford.

No. They wouldn't be eligible and they're too slow. Cadillac have a car anyway they can use in the Dallara if they are allowed. I think the rules will be brand new and everyone will have to make or style a new car.

I'm not sure they will stop at DPi influenced. While DPis do in some cases have styling cues of the manufacturers' road cars, it's not terribly obvious and you certainly couldn't refer to them as GT influenced or GT anything for that matter. I only mention that because "GT" has been mentioned so much recently. We'll have a better idea of their thoughts pretty soon, it sounds like.
