Have you checked for fault codes? You will need to use Durametric, a Porsche PST2, or PIWIS tester to get the proper fault codes.

A fault code would show if you have a bad crankshaft position sensor or an alarm/drive block problem.

If it won't crank, maybe the immobiliser has cut in. The immobiliser inhibits the starter, fuel pump, and spark. Can you her the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds when you switch on the ignition? If you can then it isn't the immobiliser.

As has been said, a diagnostic check would show what is wrong.
