It would be a real shame if Porsche is taking a "back seat" to Red Bull Powertrains. I'm sure they'll have some input it's not going to be a Porsche engine unless all the reports are wrong.
Given all of the information available right now;

Alfa Romeo (Sauber) becomes Audi. They're buying out majority stake in Sauber so it will primarily be a full Audi operation.

Red Bull becomes Red Bull Porsche. RBPT has probably been built knowing that a permanent engine manufacturer is moving in - and they've probably been talking to Porsche for much longer than we think. Porsche has exactly %50 stake in RBR so they are completely equal partners - they won't be taking a back seat to anyone.
