APP Automotive is a Dutch automotive company owned and operated by Aart Andriessen. It was formed in 1993 by Aart. APP started with repairing Porsche street cars, over the years APP became involved by several racing projects. Until the day of today Porsche is still our specialty. Whether it’s a classic Porsche or a race car. We are able to repair, restore and overhaul every Porsche.
APP Automotive consists of two departments: a streetcar-department which is specialized in Porsche and the APP Racing Engines-department. Over the years they have been involved in several projects working with cars like: Porsche, Pagani, Ferrari and Corvette. In 1998 they started racing in the Ferrari-Porsche Challenge with a 993 Supercup Porsche. One year later they had won 8 races with the 993 GT2 EVO with David Hart as the driver. In 2000 and 2001 they competed in Spanish GT with Klaas Zwart and Nicolas Dalli. That same year they were also building the 996 GT2 twinturbo race car. In 2004 they built the engine commissioned by Toine Hezemans for the Pagani Zonda GT1-car.
And in the winter of 2005 APP Racing Engines started the Corvette GT3 race car project also commissioned by Toine Hezemans. APP Racing Engines mapped the stock Chevrolet engine and Callaway Competition prepared the car. When it became clear that the engines were not reliable enough, APP started development to make the engine stronger and more reliable for the following seasons.
