Have there ever been any underground routes or stations ever proposed for the CPTM network?

Actually CPTM line 11 on the part between Itaquera and Guaianazes does go through tunnels twice though the stations themselves are elevated. These are the only underground CPTM sections. There are no plans for undeground CPTM lines with the possible exception of the planned Airport Express which might use an extensive tunnel section downtown.

Last Rotem Line 4 driverless train arrive from Korea at the Port of Santos, Sao Paulo state, to complete the rolling stock for phase 1 of line 4. Phase two (where 5 other stations will open) will require further trains until 2012.

Complementing with pictures, here is a CPTM tunnel section near José Bonifácio station, east part of line 11.







The station itself is elevated, but its tracks come from underground since the station is in a valley:
