It's been a while since the 2012 Porsche Cayman R officially hit the scene last November, but today we have a bountiful bevy of beautiful new photos for you to peruse.

With 10 more horsepower from its 3.4-liter flat six, making for 330 horsepower total, and a lightness-enhancing treatment that shaves 121 pounds from the standard Cayman, the Cayman R is the refined driver's choice in the mid-range, mid-engine Porsche lineup.

It's no slouch at the fast bits, either: 4.4 seconds to 60 mph with the PDK dual-clutch cog swapper (4.7 for the manual), and 175 mph top speed with the manual (174 for the PDK).

What do you think, though--is it enough car to justify the $66,300 expense?
