Welcome to Newport Beach, California, where the dollars earned for every man, woman and child totals about the price of a Porsche.

The coastal city in Orange County has a per-capita income of $97,597, comparable to the price tag on a new Porsche 911 Carrera. Newport Beach’s average income is nearly three times that of the entire state of California, earning the top spot of any other city or county in the state with a population of more than 65,000, according to the U.S. Census Bureaus’ 2017 American Community Survey.
