Clutch Feels Springy

I recently bought an 03 Boxster S at auction. Some jerk stole the key for it so i'm in the process of getting a new one.
In the meantime, the clutch pedal seems a little "springy" not smooth like how i'm used to in other cars.
Is this normal for Boxsters or think there could be some issues here?
Thanks

I don't understand what you mean by springy. A spring is also smooth.

I thought about it later, springy was a bad explanation.

It feels more like many pulses when I push down on it. Like it's not smooth how a normal clutch pedal feels.

It could be the clutch booster spring.
Its a spring in a small canister attached to the clutch pedal and an easy repair
