Basement shower drain

Im replacing a leaking fiberglass shower with a custom tiled one in my basement. The old one is all ripped out and I am down to concrete floor with a 2 copper drain pipe extending up about 1 . (IMG_5557.jpg) I cant seem to find a suitable drain. They all seem to be too big. They all seem designed to fit larger (and PVC, not copper) drain pipe, and also seem to be at least 4 high. (like drain1.jpg and drain2.jpg)

If I use something like a fernco fitting to add a length of bigger pvc to use one of these commonly available drains Ill end up 6 or 7 above floor at least.

Is there some solution short of chopping out the embedding concrete floor? It seems a drain sort of like used for bathtubs, that slips down inside with a sealing collar would be great. But I havent seen anything like that suitable for a tiled shower, with weepholes.
