I believe Oreca still has a relationship with Audi? Maybe not?
I think your underestimating the Peugeot Oreca relations.
Oreca has been close to running a Peugeot Engine in their own chassis. Something i believe Oreca would want more than being "a slave" for a manufacture. (a slave in the sense that they are not free to run the team as they like)

If the choice is between ORECA paying for a Peugeot engine supply, and new chassis, or Nissan footing the bill, they'll go with Nissan.

Probably, but who knows if they will look at an existing team to help them out. Didn't FLM help Porsche run the 911 Hybrid at Petit last year or am I thinking of something different?

Maybe, but Oreca has done factory programs (quite successfully) for Mazda and Chrysler. Of course, all of this may be silly talk if Oreca forges a relationship with Nissan, but it's hard to say what exactly is going to happen there if anything. Maybe they want to go for the win with their own chassis. That would certainly help sales! But I think you have to answer the door if Porsche comes knocking with an LMP1.

Dreaming of Porsche's return to Le Mans. I just might have to go back for that.

What name will the car get?
Because when you look at Porsches Le Mans naming history it doesn't seem to make much sence!?

Here are some suggestions:
919 - 918 is taken and 916 is supposedly reserved for the upcoming mid-engined F458 competitor.
963 - By 2014 it will be 63 years since Porsche first raced at Le Mans.
LM1 Hybrid - Self explanatory

What is the history behind the name of 936, 956 and 962?

930 was the name of the 911 Turbo. So the Group 4 version was called 934 and the silhoutte Group 5 car was named 935. The Group 6 car then got the name 936.

Porsche tends to use internal project codes
The 936 name came from using a variant of the Porsche 930's turbocharged engine, as well as competing in Group 6 racing.
I am not sure the reason behind the 956 and the 962.

It might be known as something similar internally but publicly I don't think they will give it a 9-- name. It's a good job they were only ever 3 digits or else I'm sure I'd be able to guess a lot of member's pin numbers!
