If the car's not cranking then first check that the main battery cables are on tight and are clean and bright. Do the same for the engine / gearbox earth strap.
Then follow the main positive lead back to the engine and down to the starter motor, and check the connection at this end as well.
There should also be a small wire to the motor which should have 12V when you're turning the ignition switch to crank.

If this is all OK then yes its possible the car needs a a new motor
