Basement toilet drain too close to wall?

I posted yesterday about identifying some rough-in plumbing, which is pretty much solved now (thank you) but made me realize another potential issue. I don't see how I could maintain 12" from finished wall to center of toilet drain..

So.. could I get away with something like 9"?! Are there toilets that could fit that?

OR.. instead of framing in a wall against the foundation/insulation there, maybe I could just do strapping and drywall on it (somehow) to try to maintain those 12 inches? (if it's that important to maintain 12")

Thoughts? Thanks all!

Turn the studs flat in the bathroom or Toto makes a toilet that is 10 inch and will work at 9"
