A steady cruise on the interstate is the best AC test in my opinion because the 911 chassis is so far from airtight. Especially in the front trunk where it leaks in while driving.
There are air leaks all over the place in there especially from the bottom of the smugglers box and below and around the gas tank to the battery tray.

While driving warm trunk air gets into the cabin in many places in and under the dash and exits through the always open air vent in the roof above the rear window.

When cruising slow and stop and go around town alot less outside hot air gets into and is drawn through the cabin.

Also, out on the highway around here you get little shade from trees and buildings like you may in town and on a sunny afternoon that makes for constant heat radiating in through the roof and windows.
